Mayor of Stevenage
The Mayor of Stevenage for 2023/24 is Councillor Myla Arceno.
Role of the Mayor
The Mayor, as the first citizen of the town, is the recognised spokesperson and representative on all civic and ceremonial occasions and is the figurehead of the community that the council serves.
Mayoral Engagements Process
The Mayor attends many functions during their year in office.
If you wish to invite the Mayor to your event please fill in an enquiry form online.
Please note a telephone call is not confirmation that the Mayor will attend an event. A provisional booking will be made in the civic diary until a written invitation has been received (by email or post). An engagement form will be forwarded on to the organisation. On receipt of this information, the booking will be confirmed.
Protocol for a Mayoral Visit
As the First Citizen for Stevenage, the Mayor, Councillor Myla Arceno should be accorded precedence on all occasions when she is present throughout the Borough.
The only exception to this is when an event is attended by a member of the Royal Family or when His Majesty is represented on official occasions in the District by the Lord Lieutenant Mr Robert Voss CBE or one of his Deputies (name to be confirmed by the Lord Lieutenant’s office).
Upon arrival at a function, the Mayor should be met and greeted by the organiser and introduced to the assembled company.
The formal announcement of the Mayor is ‘Mayor of Stevenage, Councillor Myla Arceno'.
Please address the Mayor as ‘Madam Mayor’ and the Mayor’s Consort ‘by name’.
The Mayor's correct title is the Mayor of Stevenage. After formal introductions, speakers should refer to the Mayor as ‘Madam Mayor’.
In the event of the Deputy Mayor, Councillor Jim Brown attending a function, the same courtesies should be extended to him.
Please address the Deputy Mayor as ‘Mr Deputy Mayor’ and the Deputy Mayoress 'by name’.
The beneficiaries for 2023/24 are:
