The Confederation of Greater Manchester LOCs is a representative group for all LOCs and their contractors in Greater Manchester.
Its main focus is to represent the interests of all LOCs in the Greater Manchester geography. The Confederation is not itself an LOC; it is a working group of all Greater Manchester LOCs. Meetings are held quarterly
The core membership of the Confederation is one member from each LOC. This would normally be the Chair. Each LOC has one vote where decisions are required.
Other representatives from LOCs or of any other body considered to be appropriate by the Group may be co-opted when required; they will have no voting rights.
The Chair is appointed by the group from within and reviewed on an annual basis. This may be one of the LOC Chairs or a co-opted representative by agreement.
