Spring Conference this year is from 9-11 March at NewcastleGateshead.

The Conference Agenda has been finalised and is now available online. For those members who registered for conference before 31 January, hard copies will be arriving through the post very soon and your pass will follow at the end of the month.

If you haven’t registered yet then it’s not too late. Rates start at just £21 for a one day pass and concessionary rates are available too.

To find out more and to register, go to: www.libdems.org.uk/SpringConference

We have planned an interesting agenda with a variety of debates. As well as discussing policy motions, there will be a Q&A session with Nick Clegg, set piece speeches from both Nick Clegg and Vince Cable, a full programme of training, together with a wide and varied fringe programme. There will also be a number of popular ministerial surgeries where members can raise issues directly with our ministers. But most importantly, it’s a fantastic opportunity to network, socialise and catch up with fellow members from across the country.

Every motion in the agenda is open to amendment, and the deadline for amendments, and also for emergency motions and questions to reports, is 13.00 Tuesday 6 March. A standard form for emergency motions and amendments is available to download. If you would like help drafting your amendment, the Policy Unit staff are happy to provide comments and advice (on drafting only, not on political content). Send draft amendments to [email protected] by 13.00 Tuesday 21 February for advice.

I hope to see you in NewcastleGateshead.

Andrew Wiseman is Chair of the Liberal Democrats’ Federal Conference Committee.
