Would you like to organise fringe meetings for LDV?

(C) Manny Begum Yasadein PhotographyLib Dem Voice has run some cracking fringe meetings at Federal Conferences in the past, including the Blogger of the Year awards – the BOTYs.  Even Tim Farron won one. The awards seem to have run into the ground, mainly because there are now so many forms of social media and it is difficult to capture good practice in all of them.

But we do want to reboot our presence on the fringe, and we are looking for someone to join the LDV team in order to take on the job of organising fringe meetings in future. There is no requirement to write for LDV, although we certainly wouldn’t stop you!

We’ve drawn up a job description:

Fringe meetings manager

LDV is looking for a volunteer to join our team in order to organise fringe meetings at Spring and Autumn Federal conferences.
