2019 CLP calendar:

Campaign days:  Our town centre campaign stalls will be returning on Saturday 7 September …

GC meetings: the remaining General Committee (‘GC’) meetings for 2019 are on Thursday 5 September, Saturday 12 October, Saturday 9 November and Thursday 5 December (AGM).

GC meetings will mostly be held at Community Base during 2019, with the exception of the September, November and December meetings, which will be at the Friends’ Meeting House.

Timings will vary depending on venue and whether a policy discussion is being held either before or after the GC.  Normally Saturday GCs will run from 11am – 1pm and Thursday GCs usually run from 7.30pm – 9.30pm, but the September and December meetings may start at 7pm.  Delegates should always check the papers circulated for the start time of each meeting.

EC meetings: Executive Committee (‘EC’) meetings are held approximately ten days before each GC.  In 2019 the EC will meet on 30 September, 28 October and 24 November.  Subsequent meetings will depend on the calendar of GC meetings for the year.  (EC meetings normally run either from 4pm – 6pm on Sundays or 7pm – 9pm on weekdays.)

Business deadlines for branches and affiliates to table items at the GC: 11am on Saturday 28 September, and Saturday 26 October 2019.  The deadline for business to be submitted for the CLP AGM is 11am on Thursday 21 November 2019.
