About Us

Who are Bucks ALC?

The County Association is based at the County Offices in Aylesbury. The team is led by Mel Woof together with Helen Hogan, the Deputy and Lorraine Morton who manages our office and communications. They are experienced in Town and Parish matters serving currently, or historically, as clerks, councillors and chairing of councils. As a not for profit organisation, we provide daily support on procedural elements and statutory regulations. We are also the official training provider for councillors and clerks. Further services include the facilitation of communications across County, District and Local councils plus arbitration at meetings and bespoke onsite training.

As a membership association we are unable to deal with queries from the public, but we are happy to make general information available through this website.

BMKALC would like to acknowledge local photographers and organisations who have kindly allowed us to use their artwork. Contact us for any information.
