Northern Ireland

SOLACE Northern Ireland is the Irish Branch of the Society of Local Authority Chief Executives and Senior Managers (UK). While being an important component of the UK framework, the Branch operates largely independently as the representative body for senior managers working within local government. The Society’s members are drawn from a variety of backgrounds, and while engaging with all major players in Northern Ireland governance at both local and national level, SOLACE Northern Ireland has a unique role to play in offering a corporate view of local government.
