The Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA) is the representative association of Scottish local government and is the employers’ association on behalf of all Scottish councils. It is the equivalent in Scotland of the Local Government Association in England & Wales.

Formed in 1975, COSLA exists to promote and protect the interests of councils in Scotland by providing a forum for discussion of matters of common concern. COSLA ascertains the views of member councils and communicates these to central government, other bodies and the public.
