Membership of the Association is voluntary. The EPLGA is primarily funded by member subscriptions, and member Councils receive many direct and indirect benefits as a result of being a member of the Association.
Services provided to member Councils by the EPLGA are determined by members through the EPLGA Board and General Meetings.
Meetings of the Board will be held at such time and such place as the Board decides subject only to the requirement that there will be at least four meetings in a calendar year, with at least one meeting held in every three month period. A special meeting of the Board may be held at any time.
The EPLGA provides assistance, advice and support to Councils across an increasingly broad range of areas. It is therefore important that the Association sets priorities to meet the needs of all our members. These priorities are not set in stone. As the needs and priorities of Councils, communities and other governments change the EPLGA must have the flexibility to respond appropriately.
Keeping Members Informed
Providing members with up-to-date information is a key priority for the Association. Member Councils are kept informed of matters of importance via personal contact, emails and working group meetings.
To best serve the needs of its members, the Association is governed by the EPLGA Board. The eleven member Board consists of Council Members, usually Mayors and Chairpersons who are elected to represent their individual Council. Agendas and Minutes for each EPLGA Board meeting can be found on this website.
