GMCDP's Executive Council

Greater Manchester Coalition of Disabled People is a membership organisation of disabled people. The organisation is led by an Executive Council which is elected annually by the membership. The Executive Council takes the strategic lead for GMCDP, not only deciding on what our priorities are but also the direction of the organisation and any work that it undertakes.

Any member can nominate themselves or another willing member for consideration for the Executive Council. At our Annual General Meeting, prospective Executive Members are formally nominated and seconded.
