Labour Party Youth Conference 2016: Call for Delegates
The next Labour Party Youth Conference will take place on Saturday, 27th/28th February 2016 in Scarborough. Next year’s Youth Conference is set to be the biggest ever.
All delegates to Labour Party Youth Conference must be under the age of 27 at the beginning of the conference. At the conference elections will take place for a number of key Young Labour positions including the Chair of Youth Labour, the Young Labour Executive Committee and the Youth Labour Representative on the Labour Party NEC.
Under rule, the CWU Youth Committee has responsibility for selecting delegates to this event. Expressions of interest in being a delegate to the Young Labour Conference 2016 are now being sought from branches and Regional Youth Committees.
As well as being under 27 on 27th February 2016, prospective delegates must Labour Party members.
Branches and Regional Youth Committees are asked to forward details of any interested member to my office at CWU headquarters to be received by no later than 12 noon on Wednesday, 6th January 2016.
The following details need to be provided:
• Contact email
• Confirmation of date of birth
• Labour Party membership number
Delegations must also be gender-balanced and given the male/female split in the CWU’s membership, expressions of interest from young female members are particularly encouraged.
Branches and Regional Youth Committees are thanked in anticipation of their assistance. If more expressions of interest are received than there are places available on the delegation, the Youth Committee will make a final selection under the terms of rule 13.4(b).
