The AA has 17 District Councils throughout the country that represent the interests of AA Members in their local areas.
Each council meets monthly to discuss transport-related issues and works closely with local government agencies and other transport and road safety groups in their region.
Each council is made up of no more than 10 councillors who are elected by AA Members at local AGMs. Some councillors have professional backgrounds in the transport or road safety sectors, others have experience in government or the legal community, and some have interests in vintage car or motorsport clubs. They work for the AA on a voluntary basis and use their knowledge and experience to act as a voice for their local motorists.
