Clerking Matters

It is widely recognised that an effective clerk is a key element in the success of any governing board

Clerking Matters seeks to raise both the status and professionalism of governing board clerks by providing guidance and links to support specific to the role.

Here you will find easy access to a wide range of relevant resources and topics including clerking best practice, statutory guidance and legisaltion, clerks news, information on clerking as a career and regular updates on the NGA Clerks Advisory Group.  

The NGA has campaigned for a number of years for the role of clerk to the governing board to be professionalised. NGA believe that an effective clerk is vital to effective governance and that all governing boards should seek to recruit high-quality professional clerks and pay them appropriately.
