The ATRO Annual General Meeting will be held on Wednesday 27 September 2017 in Birmingham at Meeting Room 6, Birmingham Council House, Victoria Square, Birmingham, B1 1BB The meeting will start at 1.15pm.
I’m sure most Local Authority Officers with an interest in tenancy relations work will have had another very interesting but challenging year with another new raft of legislation coming into force.
In ATRO we appreciate that demands on time and money are likely to be all the greater this year but it is also perhaps a more important time than ever to become involved with ATRO:
- to seek the support and encouragement of other officers involved in the same line of work
- to share ideas and experiences about best practice and new initiatives
- to learn about and contribute to efforts to raise the profile of, and recognise the importance of our area of work.
ATRO is the only association of local authority officers specialising in work to do with landlord-tenant problems and enforcement of the Protection from Eviction Act.
