Constituency Associations

A Constituent Association is created when at least ten members of NACO organised by the geographical location of their employment or their employment function, apply to the NACO Executive for establishment.

NACO has Constituent Associations representing members in relation to specific Societies and/or regions (the Co-operative Group South East Committee, Midland Co-operative, etc) and relating to specific employment functions (Pharmacy Professionals, Funeral Service Managers, etc).

From the members of the Constituent Association, nominations are sought to create a committee which, on matters of a purely domestic character, shall have full discretionary powers that shall conform to the rules of NACO. On matters of a national bearing, recommendations shall be subject to the confirmation of the General Council.

Constituent Associations meet as often as determined by local rules, but not normally more than four times per annum. The Associations are detailed below. For more information either contact the CA Secretary (listed below) or the NACO National Office on 0161 351 7900.
