There are a number of National Networks made up of community legal centre workers and sometimes others who work and/or have interest in particular areas of law, with particular target groups or CLC operations. These Networks develop national policy and positions regarding current issues faced by their clients, and participate in public debate on those issues. National Networks have the opportunity to meet face to face once a year at the National CLCs Conference, and meet by phone link up at other times during the year. National Convenors of these Networks are listed below.

National Community Legal Education and Community Development Network (CLECD)
The National Community Legal Education & Community Development Network (CLECD) supports CLE and community development workers across the Australian non-profit legal sector and promotes the value of CLE work as a core component of CLCs' work.
The Network is a loose affiliation that meets each year at NACLC's National CLCs Conference. This is an opportunity to share ideas, thoughts and projects. Each year the Network hosts a guest presenter at its meeting.
If you're a CLC interested in CLE and community development work, you can join the National CLECD Network mailing list and attend telecons by contacting one of the Co-Convenors, Andrea Staunton, on firstname.lastname@example.org or 03 9784 4214.
The Network also hosts the Community Legal Education and Community Development Workers Network on Facebook. This is an online space in which workers can post questions, promote their work, share resources, tips and advice and... you name it.
We also offer a range of resources (maybe an expandable/drop-down list or link to another page) to help CLE and community development workers. If you would like to suggest new resources, please email email@example.com and include the words 'CLECD Resources' in the subject line.
