About Us

CAPALC is a membership organisation affiliated to NALC (the National Association of Local Councils), our national body who support and represent approximately 10,000 local councils and 80,000 councillors across England. NALC lobby central government on behalf of their members, and set national strategic policy, supported by a legal team. They also produce the LCR (Local Council Review) and the bi-weekly DIS (Direct Information Service), which are prime sources of information relating to the local council sector.

CAPALC is currently exclusively funded by its membership and training fees.

How is CAPALC run?

The Board consists of 10 elected councillors, 1 appointed Treasurer and the employed County Executive Officer who are jointly responsible for the strategic and financial management of the Association.

The County Executive Officer (Ian Dewar) is responsible for the day to day management and responding to Member queries. The first point of contact for the organisation is the administrative assistant (Tina Webb).
As a membership association CAPALC staff are unable to answer queries from the general public.
