National Conference is a democratic event and as such we need clubs to elect delegates to send. The more club members you have the more delegates you receive, it is therefore important to make sure your society members are fully paid-up members of Labour Students – we don’t count society memberships. We will be working from membership numbers on Friday 23rd January so please make sure all your members have joined by that date. We will be in touch with club chairs to inform clubs of their delegate entitlement in the week commencing 26th January.
Clubs must elect their delegates to Conference, with 50% of delegate spaces reserved for women. The deadline for letting us know who your delegates are is Thursday 19th February.
Any questions about delegates, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Like National Council, National Conference also has time allocated for motions debates. The deadline for clubs to submit motions is February 3rd. We will then open the amendments process – allowing clubs to make amendments to motions submitted by other clubs. Delegates will have at least a week to read the final motions document before national council.
Any questions about motions or any other aspect of National Conference please email email@example.com
