The Devon Association of Local Councils (DALC) is a membership organisation run by and for its member councils for over 70 years. It is or aim to REPRESENT, ADVISE, CONSULT, COMMUNICATE, TRAIN, INFORM AND LISTEN. As the voice of local councils we welcome ideas and seek thoughts from all.
Our member councils vary in size from large town councils to tiny parish meetings. DALC seeks to uphold the interests of its diverse membership and to put forward the views of the tier of local government closest to the people and their communities in general.
DALC is funded through member subscriptions. By paying the subscription members become entitled to the services of DALC and our national body the National Association of Local Councils (NALC) which represents local councils at national level.
DALC also works closely with other bodies at regional, county and district level and with professional bodies such as the Society of Local Council Clerks.
