The summer holidays are over, and that means only one thing. Four days of conference! This is incredibly rewarding, incredibly uplifting, and incredibly fun. With so many new members, it will give you a great opportunity to meet other members, help each other recover from the wounds of the EU referendum, and get a real understanding of what it means to be a Lib Dem.
Key things that you can expect from Conference:
- Everyone gets to vote on the key issues: this time, including liberty & security, social security, homelessness and green energy - including a motion proposed by us in Tower Hamlets on corruption and corporate crime!
- Lots of debate and discussion sessions, which have recently been led by great Lib Dems including Shirley Williams, Paddy Ashdown and Simon Hughes
- Training on a number of aspects including campaigning, becoming a councillor and encouraging diversity
- Awesome social events, including the Lib Dem Disco and Glee Club
- Most importantly, a close and friendly group of committed and fun Liberal Democrats, all looking to welcome you to our liberal family
If you are travelling alone, never fear: a large proportion of us went to our first Conference alone, and it is very easy to make a group of friends to enjoy the time with. In particular, the Tower Hamlets team are a very close bunch, and will be looking to include you in our group when you come. We will also be setting up a pizza & politics event to plan for Conference, and talk through the proposed motions and discuss our positions on them.
