WeBS Local Advisory Committee (LOAC)

The WeBS Local Organiser Advisory Committee (LOAC) should provide an opportunity for the counter network to communicate opinion as to whether WeBS staff are doing things right or wrong. Conversely, staff will be able to explain why some things are done in the way they are. The LOAC is, however, an advisory committee. It has no remit to make decisions, especially concerning funding and spending issues (which is the role of the WeBS Steering Group). Its role is instead to advise and provide ideas and feedback.

We are looking to hear from any LOs who may be interested in serving on the LOAC in the future. The eleventh meeting of the WeBS Local Organiser Advisory Committee is scheduled to be held at the Nunnery in August 2016. The minutes of previous meetings can be viewed below.

If you have any comments about any aspect of WeBS which you would like to be brought to the attention of the LOAC, please get in touch with your Local Organiser or LOAC Regional Representative.

LOAC Regions

Each region has been assigned a Local Organiser to act as a voice on the committee:

All members of the LOAC agreed that their contact details should be made available to all LOs to enable comment and feedback to be channelled to the LOAC.
