This meeting will receive reports on the past year's activities, and will elect the officers and executive committee to lead the local party in 2020. Our local party continues to go from strength to strength - topping the polls in Greenwich & Woolwich in the European Parliament elections, selecting and appointing Prospective Parliamentary candidates for both Greenwich & Woolwich and Eltham constituencies, and regular social and campaigning activities. But we need to go further, and we can't do this without member involvement.
You don’t have to be elected to a formal role to get involved - every contribution helps. Over the next year we would particularly benefit from people who can: do behind the scenes work on computers (on our member and voter database); organise or host social events; get local young people more involved; coordinate making phone calls to local members; and get people from a diverse range of backgrounds more involved. Delivering leaflets to your local area is always helpful. This is the main way we get our message to voters - the majority are not going to hear from us on social media or in the mainstream media.
Even if you don’t plan on standing, do come to cast your vote as to who will be leading the local party over the next year. You can also hear from us about our plans for the future, have your say on these, and hear from an invited guest speaker.
Speaker: Humaira Ali, Southwark Councillor and Prospective Parliamentary Candidate
All members and supporters welcome (only paid up members can vote and stand).
There will be the opportunity for more informal socialising afterwards.
