St Austell & Newquay Constituency Labour Party Annual General Meeting
This is the most important meeting that we hold as an organisation when the Executive Committee and other Officers (who provide a strategic lead for the development of the Party in the constituency) are elected and as such there are certain procedures that have to be followed. While, in one sense, these might be seen as boring or red tape, it is important that the process is understood and that it is open and clear. Plus we are a member-led Party and this is your chance to get involved and have your say. This year the meeting will be held online using Anonyvote so it would be good to know have expressions of interest and these can be available to members to see prior to the AGM on Thursday 21st October. The idea of this page is to explain some of the processes and give you more information about the roles as we hope that you will think about standing for election.
The Executive Committee
There are sixteen possible posts but this six are the critical roles - click on the links below for more details
Other Officer positions are part of the Executive Committee include Campaign Co-ordinator, Comms & Social Media, Youth Officer, Disability Officer, Policy Officer, Trade Union Liaison, IT Co-ordinator and two new posts of Business Officer & Rural Affairs Officer. More details are available on the Labour Party website and you can see which additional posts we have this year and who holds them here on our own website. None of these roles work in isolation and we all support each other. If you are interested in sharing a role please just let us know and if you want more information about an individual post and how it works here in StAN, please just contact the current role holder.
Standing for election & voting at the AGM
Full Members who joined more than 8 weeks prior to the AGM can vote at the AGM.
The Women's Officer must be female and 50% of our Executive Committee must be female.
If you are interested in standing for any of the posts, but would like more information then please contact me using this link
If you are ready to stand, please use the form opposite to send details to me as CLP Secretary, ideally with the name of a proposer & seconder who must also be members but you can self-nominate so if you are interested please just let us know.
If you are not yet sure, we will be taking nominations on the night but registering your interest now gives you the opportunity to say why you are interested in the role which can be added to the page here to give everyone a chance to find out about you before the night.
Felcity Owen, CLP Secretary
