The Executive need to give you, our members, an apology. What with two elections and our own conference, and organising our largest ever programme for federal conference, (not to mention not having an editor appointed) we have failed to deliver the first annual edition of Challenge. This was due to be sent out at the beginning of July. As a result of the publication being delayed, the nomination forms for next year's exec were not sent out. Under the constitution you are all entitled to 60 days before the AGM to receive and process these.

So the Executive has decided to hold an EGM at federal conference - 15/9/2019 6:15pm at the Granville Suite of the Trouville Hotel - with a view to authorising an AGM towards the end of November. That way we can send out the nomination forms at/after conference and we will be able to adhere to all the requirements of the constitution. That is, with the exception of the requirement to have the AGM within 9 months of the end of the previous financial year. The EGM is needed to authorise the rescheduling and enact any additional measures that may be required. The agenda for the EGM is just one item - the rescheduling of the AGM.

We need a 25 member quorum at both meetings, so if you can spare us the time, everything can be sorted out. There will be a top-notch speaker and refreshments at both meetings.

Please also consider nominating yourself for the Executive. We need more people willing to do the hard graft of organisation so that our members can get involved in policy formation and green campaigning!

Conference and Challenge

Autumn Federal Conference (14-17 September, Bournemouth) is barely two weeks away, and we have a very busy Programme planned. However, as with some other party organisations, we were unable to promote our Programme coherently in the main conference directory, so please keep an eye on the website for information, and come to the stall early for a leaflet detailing what we are doing.

After the previous successful full-day programme at Brighton, we have again booked a hotel meeting room for a whole day to host our events. Most of our events will therefore be on Sunday 15th September in the Granville Suite at the Trouville Hotel, BH2 5DH, just around the corner up the hill from the conference centre.

More details and guides will be published on the website and announced via Twitter and Facebook over the coming fortnight.

GLD Challenge magazine is still being produced and will be out very shortly. At any time you can email articles, tip-offs, your own copyrighted photos and cartoons, or opinion letters to challenge@greenlibdems.org.uk
