Councillor Joe Boyle Secretary National Association of Councillors, NI Region
The National Association of Councillors (NI region)  represents 462 elected members across the 11 councils and we are delighted to support and participate in the Local Government Awards 2018. The NAC award will be presented to the most innovative project led by a councillor or councillors group which contributes to the well-being of the local community. Councillors responsibilities have increased significantly in recent years in relation to the implementation of their roles in public life, while continuing to provide support to their constituents and communities. Furthermore, the absence of a local devolved government, legal requirements under the Local Government Code of Conduct and most recently GDPR are all contributing factors to increasing the work load for councillors. Applications are now closed and we are looking forward to the Awards Event which is taking place on Thursday 11 October 2018 at the Armagh City Hotel.  Good Luck to those of you that applied.  Councillor Joe Boyle, Secretary, National Association of Councillors NI Region
