Administrative / Biographical History

The National Association of Local Government Officers' Provident Society was founded in July 1914 but left in abeyance during the First World War and only reactivated from July 1919. After the merger between the National Poor Law Officers' Association and the National Association of Local Government Officers in 1930, the National Association of Local Government Officers' Provident Society life and endowment assurance business was transferred to the Poor Law and Local Government Officers' Mutual Insurance Association which became the National Association of Local Government Officers' Insurance Association Ltd. Changed post-war conditions, such as the introduction of the National Health Service, meant that by 1960 it was necessary for the National Association of Local Government Officers to accept responsibility for supporting the Society on behalf of its dwindling members.
