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, and members can bring to it motions on any topic they feel is important to our future and to the achievement of our goals. We’re a member-led organisation, with every member having a right to submit motions to the AGM, and with every member in attendance at the AGM being entitled to vote.
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.
Every member is warmly encouraged to consider if there is any issue that they would like to bring to the AGM/Conference, whatever its nature. Formal motions for AGM debate must be proposed in writing by the specified deadline (the 2014 has now passed); on the other hand suggestions are welcome at any time for topics for Conference workshops and discussions.

The Particular Role of Local Groups
LCC local groups represent the charity’s core activist base and are especially asked to consider if there are any matters they would like to bring to the AGM/Conference - whether simply for discussion or for formal debate and decision. For example if there is a campaign your group believes we should be running, or a policy that we should adopt, then your chance to make it happen is to table a motion at the AGM.
We actively encourage local groups to put the LCC AGM on their own meeting agendas in the run up to it, engaging with their own local group members on whether to propose new campaigns, policies, procedures/practices etc. for the organisation.
