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.

Following the County Council elections earlier this month, there was no party with an overall majority on Cumbria and Lancashire councils.
In Cumbria the previous Conservative-Labour coalition will now be replaced by a Lib Dem-Labour coalition, with a Labour leader and Lib Dem deputy leader. The two parties will share out cabinet positions with 6 Labour and 4 Lib Dem members.
In Lancashire, an agreement between the parties will see Labour running Lancashire County Council with Lib Dem support, but without a formal coalition.
