Delegates will hear from Martin Reeves, Chief Executive of the West Midlands Combined Authority who will give an overview of what a Mayoral WMCA is, the role and functions it will have and the benefit for the region. You can find out more about the Mayoral WMCA consultation which is currently underway and open for submissions until midnight on Sunday 21 August.
This will be an excellent opportunity to hear about the future of the West Midlands region and to be a part of an on-going partnership between the public and private sectors.
