Regularly updated guidance notes, advisory handbooks, monthly Land & Business magazine, regular e-news and bulletins covering the latest news, issues and updates.
Local, county and regional lobbying activities help inform MPs, MEPs, authorities, agencies and the general public on your behalf.
Each county has a branch committee elected from the membership that ensures local concerns are addressed at the highest level.
Members can access a range of exclusive benefits including insurance, energy services, healthcare, discounted vehicles and offers from other members.
Our face-to-face events progamme is on hold for the time being as a result of Covid-19. Members usually enjoy a wide range of local events and activities, including conferences, briefings, networking, estate & farm visits and social functions.
Your Local Branch Committees
Our branch committee members are the eyes and ears of the CLA in each county and form an important role in formulating national policy, ensuring views and concerns of members in the Midlands are taken into account with CLA national lobbying.
Branch Committees meet before each CLA Council meeting, where chairmen raise issues directly with the CLA Presidential team in order to influence Policy.
To find out who is on your branch committee follow the links below.
We are always looking for new members to join committees. If you might be interested please contact Jan Hewes at the regional office on 01785 337010 or email@example.com for an informal, confidential discussion.
Jan can also help you contact any committee members, should you wish to raise a particular issue.
