The National Association of Councillors communicate and provide information directly
to our members by sending regular emails on topics that we feel are relevant to all
Northern Ireland councillors. We aim to assist our members by providing resources
that will help them when working within their communities, and for carrying out the
roles they may hold within their councils.
We also publish useful information and links here.

Information for 2019
Advice NI made a presentation and prepared a Case Study Document for the
National Association of Councillors NI in October 2018. These documents cover
many aspects of the scheme and highlight some of the problems that may be
encountered by members of the public when making a claim. This information
should be useful for councillors when assisting constituents, within their local
communities, with preparing applications and dealing with queries relating to these.
National Association of Councillors delegates met with the President, Cllr Damien
Geoghegan and Co-Director Mr Tom Moylan of the Association of Irish Local
Government (AILG) in August 2018. AILG provided information on the development of
their operation and the training and benefits available to the 949 elected members
that span their 32 local government councils. They also provided an insight to their
views on the possible effect of Brexit.
Following the introduction of the new GDPR regulations on 28 May 2018 a
presentation was made to the National Association of Councillors’ members by
Belfast City Councils’ Information Governance Unit. This covered many aspects of
the requirements under the new Data Protection and GDPR regulations. A summary
of the Q & A session after the presentation is also available.
Councillors’ Pension Scheme
A presentation on the Local Government Pension Scheme NI was prepared and
provided by NILGOSC for the National Association of Councillors. It and other
documents provided covered many aspects of the scheme which may be of
interest to members whether they are already in the scheme or considering joining.
At the NAC UK Conference in January 2019 a presentation
was made on Phasing Out Single Use Plastics.
