The local government body plans to enlarge the federation's UK network by asking comms trade bodies in the health, social and emergency services sectors to sign up.
LGComms will meet the federation on a quarterly basis and be involved in its annual exhibition and conference.
'While public sector organisations in Europe are different, the issues are the same,' said LGComms general-secretary Kevin Wilson.
- Dudley Council head of marketing and comms Jayne Surman was voted in as LGComms chair at last week's AGM. She will attend the federation's official signing ceremony in Brussels on 16 June.
