Could you be a future leader?

ALDC are recruiting the 2017 group for the ALDC’s Future Leaders programme at our November Kickstart and are asking could you be a leader in your area?
Whether you are standing for election next May, a key member of the core campaign team in your local constituency and ultimately looking to be a leader in your area, this could be the ideal opportunity for you.

This is an excellent training and development programme for Liberal Democrat activist and Councillors who are hopefully going to be the stars of the future.

It’s a free programme (including transport, accommodation and food) thanks to G8 funding based at ALDC’s residential Kickstart weekend on the 24th-26th November 2017 in Stone.

The group have a chance to undertake training and development for themselves in their progression as key activists in their areas, potential ‘leaders’ of local campaigning. This year the programme has a particular emphasis on young campaigners (under 30 years of age) and BAME campaigners.

If there are people on your local party who would benefit please encourage them to apply.

To apply for one of the bursaries, please send in evidence of current campaign activity (such as what you already do to help your local party) along with 200 words about why you want to be considered for one of these coveted places to [email protected].

You must be available for the whole weekend to get the most out of the experience.
The deadline is November 1st.

* ALDC is the Association of Liberal Democrat Councillors and Campaigners

    I’m a little concerned about the “Future Leader” labelling. In my experience, some of the people who turn out to be the best long-term leaders don’t initially see themselves as such. People who have not done well in the education system for whatever reason, many women and members of minority groups don’t see themselves in that definition. We should be looking for people who have that potential and encouraging their involvement without necessarily saddling them with a label as a “leader”.

    Gordon has a point.
    I do think that we need to think about the people we need to make an effective leadership group in an area. It might start with one person being seen as the driver but if it stays that way we lose out. But please look for political instinct. That is hard to add later.
