This evening some of our panel members came over to Dudley for a Community First networking event organised by Our Society Dudley to meet panel members from various areas of the borough. The idea was to find out where they are at with setting up their panels and see if there is anything we can learn from each other.
There are some really useful things that we in Wednesfield South can learn from the folks in Dudley when looking at our proposals and we can take heart in that we are not far behind other areas, despite being a little late registering our panel!
The panel members were also very interesting in hearing about the appraisal training that we have been offered and were keen to get something similar set up in Dudley.
Over all, it was a very interesting evening and a lot of ideas and tips were shared. Thanks to Lorna Prescott and Martin for facilitating the event (and for the photo above)!
