We are pleased to announce that the next Clerks Advisory Group meeting will be held on Monday 13 July 2020 as a virtual meeting.

See our events page for full details.

NGA’s Clerks’ Advisory Group meetings give clerks an opportunity to share good practice and highlight issues they have encountered in their role of clerk. The meeting will also help to inform the work of NGA going forwards in relation to our Clerking Matters campaign.

Email clerkingmatters@nga.org.uk for more details.

The first meeting in February 2016 was attended by over 40 clerks from across the country. NGA arranged the meeting with three key purposes in mind:

  • to determine what issues NGA should focus on in its Clerking Matters 2016 campaign
  • to give clerks the opportunity to discuss issues and share good practice
  • to identify what else NGA can do to help clerks carry out their work

Since this first meeting, we have continued to host two meetings in the autumn term and two in the summer term. Each round of meetings consist of one in London and one elsewhere in the country.

The meetings include policy and practice updates from NGA and give clerks the opportunity to discuss issues affecting them and their role. Past discussion topics include managing relationships in the board and supporting governors and trustees in asking challenging questions.
