Reminder: Conference motions deadlines on 11th January

One great thing about being a member of the Liberal Democrats is that you can submit motions to be considered for debate at our two Conferences.

Scottish Spring Conference takes place in Dundee from 10-11 March and Federal Spring Conference is in York the weekend after. Both motions deadlines are this coming Wednesday, 11th January.

For Scottish Conference, all the info you need on how to submit motions is here. You need 10 members, or a party body, or local party to support you.

For Federal Conference, the motion submission form is here.

You don’t even have to be going to Conference to have your idea debated. You do need to have someone lined up to propose and summate your motion though.

If you want to get an idea of how to structure your motion, you can see previous examples here.

    Federal conference is in York not Dundee

    Yes, I realised that stating Dundee as the venue for Federal Conference was bound to be an error since Federal Conference has never ventured further north than Edinburgh. On this point, I would like to recommend that Aberdeen be considered as a future venue – its conference centre has an arena with a 10,000 seated capacity and it is no more difficult to travel by train from Bournemouth to Aberdeen than from Aberdeen to Bournemouth (as Aberdeen Liberal Democrats frequently have to do to attend conference.)

    How about a survey in the membership about a conferance in Dundee? After all if we wish to be a UK wide party we should travel the country.

    @Nigal Hunter
    Actually, the Liberal Democrats is not a UK-wide party as it is not registered as a political party in Northern Ireland. Therefore, a ‘GB-wide party’ is the appropriate description.
