All councillors and clerks serving larger local councils wanting to influence NALC 's policies and the support it provides to larger local councils should visit the elections webpage more information.
The committee has an exciting spread of representation from the local council sector with vacancies for councillor (four places are available) and clerk (two places are available).
Cllr Sue Baxter, chairman of NALC said: “I have been a long-standing member of this committee and have seen the difference it makes. This is where the real growth in local government is coming from. Join the committee now and help to shape policy in your larger council area.”
Cllr Paul Harvey, chair of NALC's Larger Councils Committee said: “Now is the time to make your voice heard for larger councils.
