LGC is offering you a chance to identify the most influential people in and around local government.
We are seeking your input to help us build the ultimate power list - the LGC100, which will name the individuals who will exercise the greatest sway in determining and delivering local government services during 2015. Anyone – apart from the prime minister and chancellor – is eligible for inclusion.
The LGC100, supported by BDO and GatenbySanderson, will highlight the most influential people in local government, including officers, members, national politicians, civil servants and thinkers who dominate the sector nationally.
The list has been expanded from 50 to 100 since the last time it was compiled in 2011 to reflect the wide array of talent within the sector.
We are asking readers to nominate the people they think exert the most influence. Who is a driving force in transformation, integrating with health or partnership working? Which people are leading the way in developing new models for local authorities such as commissioning or commercial councils? Who do you think is changing the way local authorities manage their finances or encourage economic development?
Our expert panel of judges will draw from the nominations to form the final list of 100.
The LGC100 will be unveiled at a reception in November at City Hall in London, and a supplement will detail the achievements of those on the list.
