Congratulations to Malcolm Nicholson PSLCC, who was elected as SLCC’s new president at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) held on 10 October 2023. Malcolm is Town Clerk of Weston-super-Mare Town Council, the third largest local council by population, having been appointed in 2009. He is also Chair of the SLCC Somerset Branch. Malcolm has a law degree from the University of Warwick and qualified as a solicitor in 1983 when he joined Norfolk County Council. Malcolm has over 40 years’ experience within the local government sector.
During his year as president, Malcolm, as an ex-monitoring officer is keen to promote the Civility and Respect project. He has chosen to support two charities, the Alzheimer’s Society which funds both research and practical support for people suffering from dementia; and the SLCC Educational Trust supporting clerks with their professional development and training.
Each year the president is supported by sponsorship from businesses working in the local council sector. Malcolm is extremely grateful for the support given to him by CCLA, James Hallam, Microshade VSM and Vaughtons.
