The LGA's associate membership scheme is open to organisations whose purpose and priorities align with those of the LGA. Associate membership is non-voting, with subscription levels based on the size of the organisation.
Corporate associate membership is also available to other membership bodies wishing to join on behalf of a number of organisations.
The LGA's membership year runs from 1 April to 31 March. All applications for associate membership must be approved by the LGA Leadership Board.
