Policy Debates - Members, The Choice is yours

The Autumn Regional Conference is approaching. Very soon we will publish the opening/closing dates for submitting potential motions for discussion and debate by attending delegates.

So close to the 2015 Council and Westminster Elections this Regional Conference will be important as an opportunity to share ideas. Delegates will also take the chance to discuss policies along with offering suggestions/sharing concerns about how we get our message across and in many cases what the form of that message should be.

There is no doubt that the Policy debates have rightly become a major yet evolving part of our Regional gatherings. Every event seems to see even more of the attending delegates taking part and the number of suggested motions submitted increasing.

Please take the opportunity to discuss with your local colleagues ideas for possible motions but just as important - do you have ideas as to how we might vary the use of some of the time that will be allocated to the debates by conference organisers at the Hinckley Regional Conference?

If you have any suggestions about how we can refresh or vary parts of the policy time - please drop Phil Knowles - Policy Officer an email or call him for a chat.
