Why is membership important?
Local Government is facing, and will continue to face, many challenges. Not only is constant vigilance required in order to preserve and enhance our democratic system of local government, but the role and status of the elected member are subject to pressures from legislation, from non-elected public bodies and from the growth of specialisation and sophisticated management techniques.The Association exists to promote and enhance the role of councillors and to help elected members to be as effective as possible in carrying out their responsibilities. To be an effective organisation the Association needs the support of all councillors, in all sizes of authorities from the smallest parish and community councils to the largest unitary and metropolitan authorities, irrespective of party allegiance, with their authorities as corporate members. Please join us!
How to join
All serving Councillors in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are eligible to join where an Authority registers all their members with an annual subscription. The Northern Ireland region while being part of the National Association of Councillors manages its own organisation including membership fees and policy (www.nationalassociationofcouncillorsni.org.uk).
