Elections and AGM 2016 – Get Involved
Elections for the LCID Executive Committee will take place between the 1st-14th December this year.
All LCID members are eligible (and strongly encouraged) to stand.
Nominations are now open
We are opening nominations today and inviting members to put themselves forward for election.
We are keen for anyone who is interest to stand, but you need to be a member to both stand and to vote. Not a member? Go to lcid.org.uk/join and join today.
We are looking for 15 LCID members to take us forward with a range of skills and experience that might include some of the following:
- Helping deliver a conference on internationalism in late 2016
- Electoral campaigning
- Building our membership
- Building alliances and working across the labour movement – such as Trade Unions, CLPs, Coops and other Socialist Societies
- Financial and organisational governance
- Communications such as social media and blog editing
Nominations are encouraged from a broad range of members to reflect the diversity of our membership, including in terms of gender, ethnic origin, disability, sexual orientation and gender identity. LCID is also keen to maintain a balance between those who work within the sector and also passionately interested members from the wider movement.
Executive Committee members are expected to make a significant contribution through their agreed area of responsibility and joint projects. The Executive meets every month with additional Advisory Board meetings where appropriate. Dialling in to meetings enables members to participate from across the UK and nominations are particularly welcome from the devolved nations.
If you think you could help us take forward our mission as part of a team, please submit your nomination, along with a statement no more than 80 words, to firstname.lastname@example.org before 6pm on Monday 30th November.
Online voting will take place between the 1st-14th December and successful candidates will take office at the close of the AGM the following day.
LCID’s AGM will take place on Tuesday 15th December at 6.30pm in the House of Commons, Committee Room 7. Confirmed speakers include LCID Honorary President and Shadow Foreign Minister Stephen Doughty MP. Please note this is for LCID members only.
