Most of the work of the North West Liberal Democrats Regional Executive is done through sub-committees working on specific areas of work. Each is chaired by one of the Officers of the Executive.

  • Campaigns Committee
  • Candidates Committee
  • Conferences Committee
  • Finance & Administration
  • Fundraising Committee
  • Membership & Development Committee
  • Policy Committee

Any member of the party in the North West can join these groups by standing for the Regional Executive at the elections held at the Regional AGM each autumn.
