Liberal Youth Elections 2013… Chair: Sarah Harding

Liberal Youth have worked hard this election. Across the country, young Liberal Democrats have been phoning, delivering and canvassing to ensure as many Lib Dem councillors as possible were elected.

In 2015, our party will face a bigger challenge, and Liberal Youth can make a huge difference.

My candidacy for Chair is based on what we need to do to help win in 2015: plan, recruit and train.

Plan: I will work with the membership to lay out our key goals up to 2015, liaise with the Federal Party and Strategic Seats to plan our on-the-group campaigning and expand the Gold Guard.

Recruit: I will widen recruitment avenues and get membership input for campaigns and Freshers through the campaigns working group and I will collaborate with other AOs and SAOs on campaigns and policy.

Train: Still looking ahead to 2015, I want to support development in branches in Strategic Seats, provide training courses for branches to run their own sessions and share resources will all four states.

Liberal Youth certainly aren’t just delivery monkeys. We can bring innovative policies to conference, hold events to engage with our membership and run campaigns on issues we care about. By planning for the next two years we can make sure we have a bigger, more dynamic and well-respected Liberal Youth by 2015.

Together we can ensure that Liberal Youth moves forward. Vote Sarah, for a stronger youth wing in a winning party.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions or comments.
