Executive Committee


Executive Committee


The Essex Associations of Local Councils (EALC) is a member-led body that aims to protect and promote the interests, rights, functions and privileges of Parish, Village, Community and Town Councils in Essex.

The EALC is managed by an Executive Committee, which is made up of representatives from each District, Borough, City or Unitary Council area. Each area is encouraged to form Local Associations to feed into the EALC and by extension the NALC.
