The Association of Greater Manchester Authorities (AGMA) is the local government association for Greater Manchester. It was established in 1986 as a voluntary organisation to represent the ten district councils of Greater Manchester after the Greater Manchester County Council was abolished.

The ten authorities in Greater Manchester are the first in the country to develop a statutory Combined Authority which will co-ordinate key economic development, regeneration and transport functions. The Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) was established on the 1 April 2011.

The Association of Greater Manchester Authorities (AGMA) continue to act as the voice of the ten local authorities of Greater Manchester but as part of a much stronger partnership with GMCA.

AGMA invests in GreaterSport.
