The NALC committees elections are in two parts:
The primary objective of the National Assembly is to oversee the delivery of NALC’s objectives as set out in the constitution, to represent the interests of the local councils in England to provide support and coordination to aspects of the work of local councils.
NALC is looking for passionate, committed, enthusiastic local councillors with the right skills to serve on its National Assembly, and governing committees, and to support county associations’ work.
The elections will be held in December 2021 and nominations are open now. More information on what positions are open and how to apply can be found here.
