Linda has been a supporter of The Labour Party all her life and became a full member during the summer of 2017, having been affiliated through UNISON for over ten years. She says that she is fortunate to work in a local school with students with special needs. She is proud to hold the post of Membership Officer for Aylesbury Constituency Labour Party. Her hope is to engage with all members and encourage them to get involved in Aylesbury Labour activities, because “together we can change the political landscape in Aylesbury”.
The role of Membership Officer is really varied – especially with our membership having grown so much in the past few years. Membership Officers ensure that members are at the heart of all activity, ensuring the local Labour Party is a welcoming and supportive environment for everyone. This can involve encouraging members to attend meetings, get involved with campaigning and act on issues that matter to them. They ensure that everyone is equipped with the skills and information needed to do this and answer any questions people have about membership and activism. Membership Officers also work hard to ensure that members are fully up to date with their membership payments, and lead on membership recruitment. Building and supporting our membership is vital to the continuing growth of our Movement and Linda invites current and prospective members to contact her if there is anything they wish to know or that she can help them with.
