Welcome to CLOA

National Leadership - Local voice

The Chief Cultural & Leisure Officers Association (CLOA) is the professional association for strategic leaders managing public sector Culture, Arts, Heritage, Tourism, Libraries, Parks, Sport and Leisure services.  We work closely with central government and key national organisations such as Arts Council England, Sport England and The National Archives to influence the development of national policies and to lobby for positive change within our sectors. 

CLOA Memberships are open to all those working directly in local government and those delivering services on behalf of the public sector.

The Association is not only important in its own right, but acts as the hub for many other influential professional organisations working in the leisure and cultural industry. It provides a unique vehicle for cross-fertilisation of ideas towards common goals and plays an important part in delivering our vision - that every locality has a thriving, high quality and distinctive cultural and leisure offer.
