France/Assises des communes nouvelles - "Let's dare the new commune! - Thursday, June 29 from 9am to 4pm in Baugé-en-Anjou (49)
The new communes are ten years old*. To celebrate this anniversary, the AMF, the Association of Mayors and Presidents of Communities of Maine-et-Loire and the commune of Baugé-en-Anjou (one of the first new communes) are organizing the Assises des communes nouvelles on Thursday, June 29, 2023.
A key event for elected officials of new communes and for those involved in a project for 2024 or 2025, this day will highlight proposals for the evolution of the system, which are essential in order to adapt the system of new communes as closely as possible to the concerns of the field.
The morning will be devoted to debates and exchanges around the theme "taking on the diversity of local organizations": what has been achieved with the new communes? What lessons and recommendations can be drawn? In the afternoon, practical workshops will allow elected officials and their teams to discuss democratic issues, the governance of new communes and the organization of services.
With the expected participation of many elected officials, parliamentarians and experts.
Event with David LISNARD, president of the AMF and Philippe CHALOPIN, mayor of Baugé-en-Anjou, co-president of the AMF's New Communes working group.
