NALC seeks panel members for the Local Council Award Scheme


The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) seeks panel members for its Local Council Awards Scheme.

The Local Council Award Scheme is a national accreditation scheme open to all local (parish and town) councils in England. The scheme is designed to celebrate the successes of the best local councils and provide a framework to support all local councils to improve and develop to meet their full potential. It is one of NALC's most high-profile programmes, with over 700 local councils accredited or working towards accreditation. 

The scheme counts on a national panel of clerks and councillors who volunteer their time and expertise to assess applications. NALC is looking to expand the national panel's size to reflect the increased number of applications to the scheme. 

Are you looking for an opportunity to be part of a national initiative supporting local councils? Keen to hone your knowledge and experience of local council practice? Interested in seeing how other local councils operate and offering them feedback to help improve? Are you excited about working with other clerks and councillors from across the country? 

If so, check the panel member role responsibilities and requirements, and submit your interest by completing the form. Register your interest by 1 June 2023.
