Join the AGC
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).
Paying a subscription to the AGC gives you access to a wealth of resources. You can view some of those benefits in the 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.
|Rate||Total annual income||Annual subscription|
|Standard||Councillor with total annual income (incl. councillor allowance) of £20,001 - £50,000||£60 (£5/month)|
|Concession - for those on lower incomes||Councillor with total annual income (incl. councillor allowance) up to £20,000 or councillor outside of England and Wales||£10|
|Generous - for those who can afford to support other councillors||Councillor with total annual income (incl. councillor allowance) of above £50,001||£120(£10/month)|
