The Association of Green Councillors exists to support elected Green Party councillors at all levels of government and to foster, encourage and advise aspiring councillors.
Elected councillors automatically receive membership of the AGC upon election and can then attend the Annual Conference and vote at the AGM and for AGC reps.
There is a subscription charge for our Support Services which enables members to receive a range of benefits including advice, guidance, mentoring. discounted training/ conference fees and access to our online resources. (see table below).
In recognition of the fact that many councillors have given up paid work in order to give time to being a councillor, principal authority councillors (district, county, unitary, Welsh Regional Assembly, LGA and London Borough councillors) are charged on a sliding scale based on their overall income.
For town and parish councillors and aspiring Green councillors, those interested in supporting councillors such as previous councillors, the subscription charge is only £10 per year.
The tables below illustrates the additional support services available to subscribers and the breakdown of the subscription rates:
The easiest way to pay this is by monthly direct debit or standing order. If this would cause you any hardship, please contact the Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss.
Another way to subscribe if you are not yet a councillor is to buy the AGC's excellent "How to Win Local Elections" manual, written by four of the party's most expert election strategists, and already proven to work for those people who have followed it. It is 300 pages full of example newsletters, graphs and charts. This costs £20 incl P&P. This entitles you to 12 months free membership of the AGC. It is an introductory offer only and is not available to those who have already subscribed.
