Spring Conference & Action Day
Training for Campaigning
With local elections being held in May 2016, Newcastle-under-Lyme has 'volunteered' to host The West Midlands Spring Conference.
Vince Cable and Tessa Munt have both confirmed their availability and we are thrilled that we have been able to attract again two exceptional speakers.
Tickets are now on sale at www.ticketsource.co.uk/wmldspringconference2016
We have priced the tickets at £10 to cover the cost of hiring the venue and the cost of providing refreshments. There are no concessions for this event.
Our day is packed with activity, with our main focus on Training for Campaigning
Following the morning’s training – inspired and primed for action, members who keen to put into action their newly learnt and improved campaigning skills will take to the streets of Newcastle-under-Lyme and campaign on behalf of the Local Party.
Whilst Campaign Teams are out during the afternoon, we will also be hosting a series of policy discussions for members who prefer to remain in situ and would like the opportunity of direct involvement with key regional figures.
Our Chair of Campaigns, Phil Bennion, will also bring members up to date with our European campaign.
During the day our Chair of Candidates, Jock Gallagher, will be holding ‘drop in’ sessions for delegates who are interested in finding out more about becoming candidates in future elections.
Lucy Hurds (Vice Chair Rural) will be meeting with local party chairs or their representative to discuss what they want from the region and for the local parties to elect a representative for the Regional Executive.
The venue is on Merrial Street, very close to the centre of Newcastle-under-Lyme which is easily accessible from the M6.
The nearest railway station is Stoke on Trent, with regular bus links into Newcastle.
We will also be providing a 'shuttle service' if required.
