Last chance to stand for important internal elections – deadline 5pm tomorrow, 18th January

Do you have a head for figures and financial management, an interest in international relations, diversity, SAOs or campaigns?

I wrote last week that there were some important internal elections next week. The electorate is very small, the newly elected Federal Executive of which I am a member. However, you don’t have to be a member of that body to stand. Many of the positions up for grabs are open to any member of the Liberal Democrats.

The posts to be elected are listed in full on the members’ only website.They include posts such as five members of the Federal Finance and Administration Committee and its Chair, the Chair of the Campaigns and Communications Committee, the Chair and two Vice Chairs of the Campaign for Gender Balance and four members of the SAO review group.

Those interested in the rest of the world will find a number of European and international committee and delegation positions that they could stand for.

Anyone interested should submit a nomination form, signed by two voting members of the incoming or outgoing Federal Executive and send it to the email address on the website by 5pm tomorrow with supporting artwork.  It’s acceptable for the nominator to email their nomination from their usual email address to the RO.  Scanned nominations are acceptable, as long as the originals are received by the RO on the night of meeting where the elections will take place, 28th January.

So, if you want to take a role at a national level of the Party, now is your chance to have a go.
