Areas and Structures

SALC has six areas Area Committees each of which meets between 2-4 times per year. The areas are based on district council boundaries for Babergh, Forest Heath & St Edmundsbury, Suffolk Coastal, and Waveney; Mid Suffolk is split into Mid Suffolk North and Mid Suffolk South. Each SALC Area Committee elects two members to serve on the SALC Board. One of these members is the Area Committee Chairman and also has the role of sitting on the Board's Executive Committee that meet between 4-5 times a year. Recommendations from the SALC Area Committees are made to the SALC Board's Executive Committee. The SALC Area Committees are one of the ways in which local members can network and establish whether there are common issues of concern which they wish SALC to consider. They also provide an opportunity to receive updates from SALC.


Members gather annually for debate and to adopt the annual report and accounts. The programme varies but usually includes a keynote speaker and presentations of Awards.
