The Southern Region is represented by 33 local councillors who are appointed to the Assembly for a 5-year term - 27 by their constituent local authorities and 6 as Committee of the Regions representatives. Our Members meet monthly to discuss issues related to regional planning; submissions to local authorities, national government and the EU; EU programme management and projects; and other statutory functions of the Assembly. They also represent the Region on monitoring EU programme management and regional planning committees.
The Members receive a monthly allowance for attendance at Assembly Meetings and the Cathaoirleach of the Regional Assembly receives an annual allowance of €12,000.
