Our Macclesfield Spring Conference was a huge success with a strong focus on policy-making for the 2015 General Election and beyond.
Keynote speaker Chris Huhne put the focus on the environment and reflected on the vital work our North West MEP Chris Davies has done in Brussels and Strasbourg.
The afternoon focus included a two-hour consultation on the 2015 General Election manifesto, a few days before the new financial year brings the £10,000 income tax allowance from the front page of our last manifesto to reality.
2014 Spring Conference
Our Spring 2014 gathering will be held in Macclesfield on Saturday, 22nd March.
Spring conference has a different structure from autumn, with policy theme discussions rather than narrow policy motions.
Baroness Sal Brinton and Cllr Julie Smith will be leading a General Election Manifesto consultation session, and Chris Huhne will be one of our guest speakers.
Downloadable booking forms and further information are available on the conferences page now, and you can book online there or using the form in the new issue of North West Campaigner which landed on doormats across the region in December.
