LocalGov Drupal Camp 2024. Our thanks to Annertech.

We’re delighted to announce that Annertech will be the headline sponsor of our first-ever LocalGov Drupal Camp.

The event, which will take place in Birmingham this April, is themed around how collaboration can help bridge the capacity and resource gap for councils.

We’re proud to have Annertech as our lead sponsor. The company has been involved in our project since the Alpha phase and has helped many councils – both in the UK and Ireland – move their websites onto our platform.

Annertech’s Director of Development, Mark Conroy, was the LocalGov Drupal front-end lead and is now a director of Open Digital Cooperative, the organisation established to help run and ensure the financial sustainability of the LocalGov Drupal project.

“I'm delighted to have Annertech as the headline sponsor of LocalGov Drupal Camp,” said Mark.

“We've always done our best to give back to the project, and being the headline sponsor is yet another way for us to contribute beyond the code we write and services we provide.”

Thanks to Annertech for their support.

This event and the development of our products are only possible thanks to the contributions of our subscribing councils, suppliers, and supporting partners.
