About the Conference and Awards Dinner

On Thursday 21st April 2022, CIVEA, the Civil Enforcement Association, will host a one-day conference, exhibition and awards dinner at De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms, Covent Garden, London.

As CIVEA members emerge from the restrictions imposed by the pandemic, councils are working through the challenges of reinstating enforcement activity.

It is indisputable that public debt recovery has been changed permanently as a consequence of the economic impact of COVID-19. Local authorities face the challenge of covering the shortfalls in their budgets while protecting people facing additional financial pressures of the rising cost of living.

The Cabinet Office is designing policy to reform public debt collection and the enforcement sector is introducing reforms through the establishment of the Enforcement Conduct Authority. Both of these initiatives acknowledge that responsible recovery of debts to central and local government is imperative in a post-Covid era and will be explored in a wide ranging day of debate and discussion.

For anyone whose professional responsibilities include, or relate to, the collection of council tax, business rates or traffic management, this conference is a must, in order to understand the content, effects and broader implications of a post-pandemic economy.

Sure to attract leading figures and decision-makers across the profession, coming together to celebrate the fantastic work that is being done in our industry.

The evening will showcase the huge strides that have been taken in enforcement operations, which have built upon the regulatory reforms of 2014. It will demonstrate how CIVEA members have been dynamic and proactive and will be supporting central and local government clients in response to the pandemic.
