Neil Anthony - St Edmundsbury Borough Council

Neil Anthony"I have found that being a Member of cCLOA enables me to keep in touch with the key issues impacting on our industry.

Of greatest value is the opportunity to discuss with colleagues how they are tackling and taking forward those key issues – there is always someone who you can talk through a specific area of concern with or piece of work that you are seeking to progress.

Membership of cCLOA also gives the opportunity for you to have your thoughts, ideas and proposals discussed and communicated to decision makers in Government and beyond and to influence the direction of the industry.

Attending meetings and getting involved also gives you time to reflect on the services you run and returning invigorated to take them to the next stage."
