“Labour Party’s Election Manifesto in 2017 was a beacon to voters, reminding people that not all parties or politicians are the same. We now need to build on that progressive agenda for the many, not the few – and this means fighting for proper jobs, fighting for the NHS and our schools, fighting for older and vulnerable people, fighting for LGBT and disability rights, fighting for our communities and fighting for the future of our children.”
CLP Chairs (as you can guess from their name) chair meetings, making sure they run smoothly, are conducted in a respectful, comradely way in accordance with the Labour Party rules. They’re there to support all of the other officers and lead on the local campaigning strategy as well as to make sure that meetings run smoothly. Chairs are also a key contact for members; pointing them in the right direction, motivating them to get involved and making sure they’re clued up on the CLP’s campaigns. CLP Chairs have an overview of the whole CLP and they help all of the other officers, ensuring that everyone supports each other in their roles. With so much work being done by volunteers, it’s crucial that everyone works together so that the CLP can be run as effectively as possible.
