Community Council Liaison Group (CCLG)
Glasgow Community Councils are requested to consider this call for nominations and establish whether there is a member from your elected constituted membership who would like to be considered for a place on the CCLG. To assist you in considering this request, the current Terms of Reference, and a copy of the nomination form for the CCLG are available HERE
The future work programme for the CCLG is likely to revolve around issues such as effective communication and marketing, development of IT capacity and a capacity building and training programme. As such, the opportunity to participate in the work of the group might particularly appeal to anyone with expertise, knowledge or interest in these matters.
Your nomination should be submitted on the attached Candidate Nomination Form and be signed by the nominated candidate as well as the Chair or Secretary of your Community Council. The Form should be returned to the return address provided by no later than 4pm Friday 29 November.
