What is the Members' Council?

Membership is about bringing ideas and views to the Council, to ensure Locala truly is a community partnership. The Members' Council was established to represent the voice of Locala's members, as they work closely with the board to shape future plans.

Our Members' Council is made up of:

  • 10 elected Shareholder members
  • 6 elected Community members
  • 4 appointed Co-opted members (2 Locala Authority Councillors and 2 GPs)

What does the Members' Council do?

Our Members’ Council have achieved a huge amount over the last four years, here’s just a few examples:

  • Interviewed and appointed the Chair and Non-Executive Directors.
  • Played a leading role in developing the Volunteer Strategy and securing support for a Volunteer Services Manager role. As a result, we now have 77 active volunteers carrying out over 180 hours of volunteering each week.
  • Played a leading role in securing support for a Board level HR Workforce Lead. This led to the appointment of a new Associate Director of Workforce.
  • Have been involved in ‘Values Based Recruitment’ interview panels for the Associate Director of Workforce and Associate Director of Transformation roles. 
  • Influenced the organisational values Locala has today.
  • Have the final say as to which local voluntary organisations are funded by the Locala Community Fund.
  • Have developed actions to address issues that have arisen in quarterly colleague surveys.
  • Made recommendations that have shaped the Quality Priorities that we have today.
  • Have attended Rapid Improvement Events and reported back to the Board on their observations.
  • Have been involved in the organisation of the Annual Members’ Meeting.


Who can be part of the Members' Council?

Any member of Locala can run for election to our Members' Council. Elections take place each summer and the next round of elections will take place in September 2016. For more information about the election process and how you can vote for your future Members' Council, see our 'Elections' page.
