What happens at the AGM & Campaigners' Conference?

LCC’s all day AGM and Campaigners’ Conference is not just an occasion for regular AGM business such as approving the audited accounts; it’s also an opportunity for LCC members to debate and shape the future of the organisation and how we operate – from deciding what policies we believe in to what specific campaigns and projects we should run.

The AGM is the charity’s ultimate decision-making body. Members can bring to it motions on any topic they feel is important to our future and to the achievement of our goals with every member in attendance at the AGM being entitled to vote. This year a number of important motions have been submitted, from tidying up our constitution to setting the direction of our campaigning over the next 12 months. You can read about them here.

But the event is not just about such formal decision-making. The annual conference part of the day is an important forum for members and non-members alike to engage in debates and discussions about how we conduct our work and the political environment we operate in, and how we can inform, learn from, and support each other so as to maximise our effectiveness as a whole.

The Particular Role of Local Groups

LCC local groups represent the charity’s core activist base. Members of LCC local groups are especially encouraged to attend the AGM to participate in the debates and discussions. There is also a programme of workshops on the day especially designed to assist local groups in developing their campaigning, identifying and solving future challenges for grassroots campaigning, and sharing ideas and innovation. We will also be celebrating the wonderful work that local groups do through our 2014 Campaigner Awards.
