Member Roles and Induction
There are a number of different roles which Members can be appointed to within the LGA's Member Structures. More information on these roles and what they entail can be found here.
Code of Conduct
Councillors serving on LGA's member structures, or otherwise undertaking LGA business, are required to operate in accordance with the member code of conduct of their home local authority. The LGA complaints procedure can be viewed here.
To ensure that equalities issues are fully considered in the LGA’s policy making process, each LGA Board has identified a member to be an Equalities Advocate.
