Meeting, Sunday 22nd September

17 September 2019

There has been quite a bit of activity lately behind the scenes in the SDGP, particularly with getting nominations and selecting candidates in the four Westminster constituencies that we cover. 

We are calling a meeting to bring you up to date and to plan our next steps; this will be held next Sunday, 22nd September at Ashburton Arts Centre from 3 to 5pm

On the agenda: 

  1. Update on all 4 selection processes so far
  2. Discuss why we are selecting and the current advice from the national party on alliances
  3. Try to recruit for any vacant officer roles and potentially campaign co-ordinators
  4. Provide overview of the Crowdfunder training for when / if campaigns launch
  5. Look at target seats for county elections next year
  6. Try to get more local social meetings going

Given that there is still a high chance of a general election being held at short notice, it is vital that we have potential candidates, finances and a campaign team ready to go at short notice – all the other parties will be doing the same. So, if you want to get involved in any way, however small, come along and find out more.
