2020 CLP calendar:
Campaign days: These have yet to be agreed for 2020.
GC meetings: the first meetings of the General Committee (or ‘GC’) in 2020 will be at the Friends’ Meeting House on Saturday 11 January and Saturday 15 February (CLP AGM).
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 times can vary – especially for the CLP AGM. Delegates should always check the papers circulated for the start time of each meeting.
EC meetings: EC meetings are normally held approximately ten days before each GC. The next meeting of the EC is scheduled for Sunday 2 February. Subsequent meetings will depend on the calendar of GC meetings for 2020. (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 a fortnight before the meeting date. NB: The deadline for business to be submitted for the CLP AGM is 9am on Saturday 1 February 2020.
