Provost and Depute Provost

The roles of Provost and Depute Provost are principally of a civic and ceremonial nature, and they attend events and engagements at which the Council should have a presence. 

With regard to Royal visits, the Provost and Depute Provost always represent the Council in the protocol party and have the lead role in conjunction with arrangements put in place by the Lord Lieutenant. They each wear a chain of office when they undertake civic duties. These chains incorporate the Coat of Arms, letting everyone know that the Council's civic leaders represent not just the Council, but everyone in East Ayrshire.

At the Council meeting on 24 June 2021 Councillor Barry Douglas was appointed as Provost and Councillor Sally Cogley was appointed as Depute Provost.
