Lobby Day

What is Lobby Day?

Lobby Day is an important part of the National Association’s advocacy programme aimed at promoting parish and town councils in Parliament.

It takes place the same day as our National Council and involves representatives of county associations and NALC meeting with Members of Parliament (MPs).

County associations and parish and town councils play a vital role in helping us maintain and increase the sector’s influence with government, civil servants and Parliamentarians, especially talking to MPs and telling them what great things you are doing and getting them to support the changes we are calling for on your behalf.

Lobby Day provides a fantastic opportunity to do just that, building on the foundations laid in previous years to develop and strengthen relations with MPs.
