Registrations are now open for the LWN AGM 2013.
The LWN AGM is our annual democratic event. It is only open to women members of Labour Women's Network.
The Annual General Meeting will be held at 10am on Saturday, September 21st, in the Cambridge Room at the Hilton, Brighton.
As usual, the meeting is being held during Annual Conference week.
This year, our AGM will be held immediately before National Women’s Conference. This will be inside the secure zone of Conference, and it is essential that you hold a pass. If you do not have a pass (either for the whole of Annual Conference, or a 1-day Women's Conference pass) you will not be able to attend the LWN AGM.
We're pleased to announce that we have secured a special deal with the Labour Party for LWN members attending our AGM.
If you're coming to the LWN AGM, you will be able to get a free pass for Labour's National Women’s Conference – just tick the box to attend both when you apply. (You can do so here http://www.labour.org.uk/womens-conference-2013)
This offer is only available to those LWN members attending the AGM - to be eligible, you must register here for the AGM before applying for your free pass for Labour Women's Conference.
To attend the AGM:
- Register on this page today.
- Apply for your pass to Women's Conference or Annual Conference: http://www.labour.org.uk/apply-for-conference
This year we will be holding elections for the Secretary, Chair and five committee members, who will hold office for two years until 2015.
All of our Committee members work as a team; we are a voluntary organisation and therefore we depend on our committee to develop and deliver our training and events, run the organisation, raise funds and so on. This year we are particularly looking for people with the skills to help us grow our membership and increase our high-value fundraising, but anyone with the commitment and enthusiasm to help take LWN to the next level will be welcome.
Nominations will close at 5 pm on Friday, 16 August 2013. The elections will be independently run by Electoral Reform Services, and the ballot will open on 27 August. Voting will be online for all members for whom we have email addresses, and by post for the remainder. The results will be announced at the AGM, and all nominees will be notified of the outcome by email.
