The Association is run by an Executive Council led by voluntary Branch 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.
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.
The Officer Team has the responsibility to ensure that the Association’s
objectives are sustained and steady progress is maintained in all areas.
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
