What is Conference?
Liberal Democrat Conference is a twice-yearly event where members gather to put forward, debate and vote on the Party’s national policies. There are keynote speeches from the Leader, MPs and other senior figures, and Party committees present their annual reports to the membership. Beyond the main Conference hall, there’s a wide range of training on campaigning, fundraising, recruitment, plus advice sessions for those interested in being candidates for councils and Parliament. At lunchtimes and in the evenings there are plenty of fringe meetings with a chance to discuss ideas with speakers from party groups and national organisations. There are receptions, a disco, and even a singalong night, and there’s always a large crowd in the Conference bar at the end of the day.Read more
