LGBT Lib Dems - Summer Conference

DELGA will be getting together on Saturday 26th June for the fifth Liberal Democrat LGBT Conference.

The conference will be held in the Liberal Democrat Group Office, Manchester Town Hall. It was previously scheduled for the North-West Liberal Democrats' office but advance bookings have swelled beyond what that can accomodate. The conference will run from noon to 6pm, and be followed by drinks on Manchester's Canal Street.

The agenda will look at the post-general election landscape. We will review the campaign itself, our LGBT policy positions, and our future campaigning. We will also look ahead to the Liverpool Federal Conference.

The conference is open to invited party staff, and all DELGA members. Any party member can join DELGA on the day, but bring along a valid Lib Dem membership card. Please let us know if you intend to come by e-mailing dave.page@delga.org.uk and we will keep you up to date with any last-minute changes.
