Zurich Municipal are supporting the Society of Local Authority Chief Executives in developing an international exchange programme for 1998.

The exchange programme offers the opportunity for chief executives to investigate alternative approaches to managing local government issues and to share their own experiences.

The focus for the visits will be the senior local government management conferences where chief executives will be able to meet a range of their fellow managers and gain a valuable insight into current developments.

The exchanges are currently planned with senior managers from Australia and New Zealand.

The programme also includes an opportunity for SOLACE members to meet up with Zurich Municipal's counterparts in Australia and New Zealand who work closely with local government in both countries.

All information gained from the visits will be fedback to the SOLACE membership and form the basis of a wider discussion amongst local government on options for future developments.

Eddie White from Zurich Municipal said:

'We are pleased to be able to support the SOLACE exchange programme. Zurich Municipal are committed to promoting the long term need of local government and this programme will help by identifying the key issues facing the sector in each country and current thinking on management approaches to tackle these.'

Richard Brasington, exchange co-ordinator for SOLACE, said:

'SOLACE welcomes the new support agreed with Zurich Municipal which will maintain these valuable opportunities for professional development and for promotion of best practice for local government between the UK and our Antipodean colleagues.'
