THE body which represents secretaries of district and unitary councils has changed its name to reflect the legal discipline of many of its members.
The Association of District Secretaries became the Association of Council Secretaries and Solicitors (ACSeS) at last month's annual meeting.
Spokesman Mark Winstanley said the change was to clarify ACSeS' identity as the group for heads of legal and administrative services.
"This new identity more adequately reflects the role of our members as chief officers and their deputies, providing administrative and legal services to their authorities."
Lawyers in senior positions following the annual elections include president David Hartas, solicitor at Wakefield. Vice-presidents Peter Keith-Lucas and Richard Mellor are also legal heads, at Swansea and Richmond-upon-Thames councils respectively.
