Newsletter: LDER at Autumn Conference

LDER will have a strong presence at our Bournemouth Autumn Conference.

 

Exhibition stall

We’ll be running our stall throughout Conference. You’ll find us at A19; so do drop by for the latest news and campaign material.

If you can spare an hour or two to help man our stall, please let Crispin Allard or Keith Sharp know. All offers appreciated.

 

LDER AGM

Our AGM will be held on Saturday September 19 at 4.30pm in the Marriott Highcliff – Blandford Syndicate 3.

We still have some vacancies on this year’s Executive so please contact Keith Sharp if you’re interested and want to know more about the role. We can accept nominations at the AGM itself.

 

Conference Fringe even

LDER is supporting the Electoral Reform Society’s (ERS) fringe event – ‘Like Minds to Change Minds’ – to be held on Sunday September 20 at 6.15pm in the main BIC Conference centre, Bayview 1. The session addresses a key issue for this Parliament: how to build cross-party and cross-organisation alliances for reform between now and 2020.

We know the Tory Government’s ears are closed to change; we know too there is more dissatisfaction than ever with our undemocratic electoral system. How to sustain momentum and mobilise for change, and the part Liberal Democrats can play, is the topic for debate.

 

Conference reception

ERS is hosting a drinks reception on Monday September 21, at 6pm at the Dean Park Inn. Entry eligibility – support for electoral reform!

 

And: Labour for Electoral Reform?

Jeremy Corbyn looks like the front-runner in the Labour leadership stakes. A Facebook page has been set up to ‘encourage’ him to embrace electoral reform if he wins. You can sign up here.

 

See you in Bournemouth.
