The Association is run by an Executive Council led by elected voluntary Officers. The Executive is comprised of representatives of the branches. The Association’s Officers are elected by the Association members at the Annual General Meeting.
The Officers of the Association include the following positions:
Two Deputy Chairmen
All play a vital role in ensuring the Association operates to achieve its main objective - that of WINNING ELECTIONS. All posts are up for election every year, and any member can progress to these positions.
The Officer Team has the responsibility to ensure that the Association’s objectives are sustained and steady progress is maintained in all areas. Like any worthwhile organisation there is a lot of hard work to be done it is rewarding and often good fun.
The future of the Conservative Party is very much in the hands of its members. So no matter how little or how much time you can give, it will be well used.
Getting involved at Branch Level:-
Like any volunteer organisation the local Conservative Branch can only be strong and effective if it has a group of active members. If you wish to take part in your local branch you can get involved with campaigning at a number of levels depending upon the amount of time you wish to spend.
As a Branch Committee Member:-
Every local branch is responsible for building up membership, raising money, communicating with the electorate and campaigning to win elections. Each Branch is run by a local Committee of enthusiasts who will carry out a number of important tasks:-
Running Social Events
As a Deliverer:-
As such you would be responsible for an area of houses and would undertake to deliver newsletters to those houses when needed (probably four times a year - plus extra deliveries at election time).
As a Canvasser:-
When you carry out surveys/canvassing in your area in order to gain information about the electorate’s voting intentions, worries and concerns, etc. This information enables us to campaign effectively and helps to increase our membership base.
As a Fundraiser:-
Every year each branch is given a fundraising target, and many members find that their skills can be best utilised by helping to organise the many varied social events that take place throughout the year, helping to raise funds as well as bringing enjoyment to everyone involved. Whatever your interests a local Conservative branch should have some way of utilising them
