Executive Committee

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

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