BARRY MACLEOD-CULLINANE ADDRESSES THE NETWORK’S MEMBERSHIP
CPON members met yesterday for their annual general meeting.
The network met following yet another succesful year, having seen its membership rapidly increase, and its relationship with other local government organisations grow stronger.
The AGM was held at the headquarters of London Councils, in Southwark, and hosted by Barry Macleod-Cullinane, the political adviser to the Conservative Group and former Conservative political assistant at Harrow.
Afterwards, members relaxed and got in the Christmas mood with a reception at the Southwark Rooms.

Morgan Einon, CPON’s Deputy Chairman (Communications), said, “Whilst CPON is proud of its ‘realtime’ discussion network, nothing is better for our members than to meet face-to-face.
“We try to organise at least two away days a year and the December AGMC is always special. Particular thanks this year must go to London Councils for providing us with a great venue. We had a good meeting with some excellent contributions and came away with a number of projects which will enhance the network’s growing reputation.
“After the formalities it was great to relax with friends in the Southwark Rooms and other local venues and cement the friendships that exist throughout the network.”
