Our vision

Our principal aim is to represent the interests of district council finance on a national level. We do that through the activities of the Executive Committee, who act as advisors on various different areas. A list of the officers and their areas of responsibility can be found in the officers' area.

In addition to this representation, membership involves publication of the minutes of Executive Committee meetings, as well as attendance at two general meetings per annum, one at CIPFA conference and one in December.

The Society is also represented on the Association of Local Authority Treasurers, which collectively represents the professional interests of treasurers in all types of local government.

COVID-19

The SDCT executive are working on behalf of district councils to assess the full implications of the COVID-19 crisis on our members. This includes collating information on cost pressures and income reductions, especially where they can be quantified, so that we can lobby MHCLG for further funding. 

We would encourage any authority to help us contribute to this - please get in touch on sdct@westoxon.gov.uk
