National Association of Civic Officers

The first ever National Association for people working for Mayors and other Civic Heads throughout the country is being launched later this summer. Pauline Day, Chairman's secretary at Stratford District Council is a member of the Executive Committee of the Association.

The Association, which intends to be forward looking rather than rooted wholly in tradition, will promote best practice in civic offices and develop the professionalism of all levels of staff. The Association is also intent on improving the professional services to Mayors and Chairmen of Councils in the UK and on improving training for staff.

Already, two national conferences for civic officers have been held and the new Association seeks to provide training and develop opportunities including formal qualifications, currently there are no specific training courses for civic officers.

"I am delighted to be part of this Association and I have already benefited from meeting people working for Civic Heads," said Pauline Day, Chairman's secretary at Stratford District Council.

"My role within the District Council is fairly unique and it is useful to be able to compare my responsibilities with people doing a similar job. Other areas where the Association will be able to help include issues relating to best value, training and improving the civic officer network for exchange of information."
