A civic role, the Civic Chairman of the of the Derbyshire Dales is elected at the annual meeting of the council and serves for a civic year.
The Civic Chairman wears a ceremonial chain of office at official engagements and generally represents the District Council at more than 50 functions throughout the year, organising special fund-raising events for nominated charities.
The role of Civic Chairman is different from that of Chairman of the District Council, which is a more strategic leadership role.

Councillor Wain said:
"The Air Ambulance Service operates the local air ambulance services for Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland and Warwickshire & Northamptonshire as well as providing the national paediatric and neonatal transfer service and the Children’s Air Ambulance which cover the whole of the UK.
"The Air Ambulance Service does not receive funding from the government for its daily missions. It relies entirely on voluntary donations and support from our communities and business, which means our support will help keep them flying."
