The South Gloucestershire ALCA Area Group meets once a year at its Annual General Meeting to hear presentations from related organisations on such topics as Climate Change, Health and Well Being, Fair Trade, planning etc. This meeting is also for the 40 member Local Councils and Parish Meetings to raise issues and questions to be addressed by South Gloucestershire Council.
The four representatives, elected by the ALCA Group, to sit on the Avon Regional Committee feed the more sector related issues up to the National Association of Local Council and also feed into sector specific consultations on behalf of the membership, to influence NALCs lobbying of government for policy change where needed.
Local Councils in South Gloucestershire also meet, independently of ALCA, as a Forum group with South Gloucestershire Council.
