The LGA is a politically balanced organisation, with each of the political groups allocated places throughout the structure in proportion to the number of people their councillors represent.
The LGA and the Association of Liberal Democrat Councillors (ALDC) are again active at this year’s Liberal Democrat Spring Conference. Local government speakers will feature in a number of debates, seminars, training sessions and roundtables, hosted by a variety of partner organisations.

Bournemouth will be starting to look very familiar this year, as the Liberal Democrats return there shortly, just a couple of months after our very successful LGA conference.

Liberal Democrat Councillors have voted for the team to represent them at the LGA 2019-2021.
June comment from Wera Hobhouse MP, Shadow spokesperson for Climate Change & Energy and LGA Vice-President
The ballot boxes have well and truly been packed up, and the local elections are over for another year. It was a great set of elections for us with an increase of over 700 Councillors, that’s 2,500 now across the country.
