IRRV Annual Scottish Conference & Exhibition 2017
At the heart of Scotland’s public services
The Crieff Hydro Hotel, Crieff,
6th – 7th September 2017
Valid for IRRV CPD Points
The Institute is delighted to announce details of its 2017 Scottish Conference. The Conference is – by popular demand – returning to the Crieff Hydro Hotel, where conference attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy the excellent recreational facilities set in beautiful surroundings.
The theme of this year’s Conference – “At the heart of Scotland’s public services” – comes at an important time for Scotland and will look in-depth at the key issues facing the public services, with particular emphasis on valuation, benefits and revenues issues. There are many significant issues affecting revenues, valuation, benefits and welfare reform ahead and the IRRV Scottish Conference will again live up to its long-standing reputation of being at the forefront of debating key issues and solutions.
In addition to delivering key updates on these big issues and encouraging debate about these, conference will also examine the improved delivery of Scottish public services in a time of financial challenge and will examine how to provide quality services, with an emphasis on continuing improvement into the future.
The Institute is again indebted to Scott and Co who are our Overall Conference Sponsor at Crieff 2017.
Scottish AGM and Seminar
The IRRV Scottish Association held a highly successful half day seminar and lunch at the Municipal Chambers, Falkirk, on Tuesday 28th February 2017. We were grateful that this year’s AGM was kindly again being sponsored by Alex M Adamson LLP.
IRRV Revenues & Benefits Certificate and Diploma Qualifications 2016-17
We are delighted to advise Scottish local authorities about arrangements for provision of the Diploma & Certificate qualifications in Scotland, provided by the Institute of Revenues, Rating & Valuation.
As you may be aware, IRRV provides a Certificate qualification course aimed at staff in Revenues and Benefits administration in Scottish local authorities. It is also very relevant to other staff – for example Housing Association staff wishing to build an in-depth knowledge of Housing Benefit, or recovery agents’ staff wishing to build an in-depth knowledge of Council Tax and NDR.
