Meeting of SLCC & NALC Leadership Teams

9 May 2023

The leadership teams of SLCC and National Association of Local Councils (NALC) held their latest catch-up meeting at NALC’s new office in Bloomsbury, London on 27 April 2023.

Attendees were Adam Keppel-Green, SLCC chair, Steve Trice, SLCC vice chair and Rob Smith, SLCC Chief Executive; Cllr Keith Stevens, NALC chair, Cllr Peter Davey, NALC vice chair and Jonathan Owen, NALC Chief Executive.

The meeting was positive and productive and an opportunity to review progress on the memorandum of understanding signed last year.

The general theme was the importance of joint working and mutual support between the organisations at all levels to support the sector.  The meeting stressed the importance of encouraging councils, councillors and clerks to promote membership of each organisation and to recognise the contribution they make to supporting the sector to promote the wellbeing of residents.

The respective chairs, Cllr Keith Stevens and Adam Keppel-Green stressed the value of joint working as evidenced in the recent work on civility and respect, the establishment of the Smaller Authorities Audit Appointments and many other areas over the years.

There was common agreement to work together further on civility and respect, encouraging employment in the sector, providing support on finance matters, Martyn’s Law and the creation of new councils.

The leadership teams will meet together regularly to progress these and other matters.
