The ALC Executive

What is the ALC?

The Association of Labour Councillors (ALC) is an organisation affiliated to the Party. They work to support councillors and the vital work they do.

Upon being elected as a Labour Councillor, people automatically receive membership of the ALC. Being a member of the ALC entitles councillors to a range of support and training which is all available on the Councillors Hub. The ALC consists of 16 elected representatives, broken down as below;

  • 11 Regional/National representatives
  • 2 National Executive Committee (NEC) Local Government representatives
  • The Labour Group Leader of Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA)
  • A representative of the Welsh Local Government Association
  • National Policy Forum (NPF) Local Government representative

Like other affiliated groups, the ALC is run by an executive body consisting of councillors from across England, Scotland and Wales. This body is elected by councillors every two years, and is next due to be elected in Summer 2021.
