The History of the Association

On 4th December 1900, the then Mayor of the City of Westminster, His Grace The Duke of Norfolk KG (Left), called together a meeting of all the Mayors of the Metropolitan Boroughs (the Inner London Boroughs), the object being to discuss matters of ceremonial procedure with a view to uniformity being adopted by all the Mayors of the Metropolitan Boroughs.

Later, in 1901, the Metropolitan Mayors and Ex-Mayors’ Association was formed with the purpose of promoting discussion of general matters affecting the Metropolis and to enable Mayors and former Mayors to meet on a social basis.

1950 all the Mayors and former Mayors of the other boroughs of Greater London were invited to become members.

In 2001 the London Mayors’ Association celebrated its Centenary.

In 1965 with the re-organisation of Local Government in London, the Mayors and former Mayors of all 31 Boroughs were entitled to join as were the Lord Mayors and former Lord Mayors of the City of London and the City of Westminster.

At the establishment of the Association in 1901 when the first meeting was chaired by the then Mayor of Westminster, it was established in the constitution of the Association that the Chairman automatically be the Lord Mayor of Westminster. In 2004 the membership agreed that the Lord Mayor of Westminster would be the President of the Association and a former Mayor or Lord Mayor be elected annually as Chairman of the Association responsible for the day to day running of the Association.

The Association is non-party political and arranges a variety of events throughout the year including an Annual Service in Westminster Abbey, a visit to a foreign Capital City and lunches for visiting Mayors from abroad.

2001 Centenary

In 2001, the Association celebrated its Centenary and during the year we were honoured that Her Royal Highness the Princess Alexandra was our guest of honour at the Centennial Annual Dinner.
We were also invited to Arundel Castle as guests of the Earl of Arundel, ancestor of our founder the 15th Duke of Norfolk. The centennial year came to an end at St James’s Palace when we attended a Reception in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh.
