It’s official – Autumn Conference has been reinstated*

At a meeting of the Federal Board last night, it was decided to reinstate September’s Autumn Conference to its normal length.

As Party President, Mark Pack, stated this morning on Facebook:

The Federal Board met last night and agreed to rescind the cancellation of Autumn Conference in the light of the General Election.

This means we return to the original dates and venue for the event.

As both the key staff and key volunteers who prepare a conference will be working flat out on the campaign, the Board also ask Federal Conference Committee (FCC) to consider using its powers to set later deadlines for submission of motions and reports so that people have a some time to recover after polling day.

The Board also asked FCC to plan in opportunities for members to give feedback on the General Election campaign at conference.

The Chair of Federal Conference Committee, Nick da Costa, added the following:

Just to follow on from Mark’s post. FCC will be looking at revised and amended submission (etc) deadlines soonish, and we will get those published when we’ve signed off.

* This announcement, as with all Board decisions, is subject to scrutiny by the Federal Council.
