Join the ICE Yorkshire and Humber Region for their AGM followed by a presentation from Adam Hawksbee, from UK Onwards on the topic of levelling up. Adam will be discussing Onward’s research on how to restore economic growth to places where it is lagging and repair the social fabric of communities where it is fraying. Onward have published reports on mayoral devolution, apprenticeships, transport networks, antisocial behaviour, and a range of other topics relating to regeneration and economic growth.

The AGM, presented by outgoing Chair Vicky Belton provides an opportunity for you to see what the branch has been up to in the last year, to provide you with information on how you could become more involved in the ICE and to vote in our incoming Chair, Bryan Penny.
