Written answers (Question to Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government)

The County and City Managers' Association (CCMA) is the organisation through which senior managers in local government provide sectoral leadership across business and programme areas. The CCMA works closely with Government Departments and other key stakeholders to engage on and to advance key public service delivery issues. The operation of the CCMA, as such, and duties of its Chairperson, in this context, are a matter for local authorities.
