An invitation to new members of the Liberal Democrats from ALDC #libdemfightback

ALDC Master Logo (for screen)Firstly, welcome to the Liberal Democrats! We’re really pleased you’ve taken the first step and joined the party fighting for a fairer, open and more liberal society.

Many people when they take their first steps in politics, give some thought as to how they would like to be more actively involved. Joining ALDC is a great way to get started in your local area, and also to begin to make connections with other members in different parts of the country.

For every new member serious about getting active in their local area, campaigning in their community and going on to winning local elections, ALDC membership is a must.

Who we are

ALDC was originally founded, as the Association of Liberal Councillors, in the late 1960s. Our goal, then and now, is to give local Liberal Democrat members the tools and support they need to reach out and campaign effectively within their communities.

Despite the name, we are not just an organisation for councillors! We support Liberal Democrats in every local role. Whether you are interested in becoming a local campaigner, an election candidate, or a councillor, ALDC is here to help.

ALDC is a membership organisation, all of our work is made possible by subscriptions and our resources are exclusively available to ALDC members. New members can join us from £3.41 per month for the first year, a half-price offer open to all party members.

What we do

We create leaflet templates for people to customise and use in their local areas, we offer telephone and online advice on any aspect of campaigning or council work, we give all ALDC members the option of a free ‘MyCouncillor’ or ‘FocusTeam’ website to promote their local work, we circulate useful policy briefings and council motions from our members and our colleagues elsewhere in the party, and we run training sessions at party events and our own annual events.

We are here to help our members make a Liberal Democrat difference in the lives of their communities, wherever and however we can.

The more members we have, the more we can do to help local Lib Dems all over the country campaign in and serve their areas. By joining ALDC, you will be supporting the work (and the election chances!) of nearly 2500 other party members who are members of ALDC today.

If you want to learn more about our work and find out more about what we do, you can do so on our website here.
