In this meeting we will be electing a new steering committee and all details are below. We will also be discussing a 'Free Speech Motion' proposed by a member, and discussing organising and future campaigning.
The following posts will be open for election:
2 Co-Chairs – of whom at least one will be a woman
2 Co-Treasurers – of whom at least one will be a woman
Party Engagement Officer
Up to 5 ordinary members (this will be determined to ensure that at least 50% of the committee are women).
**Application procedure for candidates**
Candidates for positions will have to be members of Momentum; you can join at http://join.peoplesmomentum.com/ (Note: Being a ‘supporter’ of Momentum, and hence receiving emails etc., does not entail being a member. To be a member, you have to pay a yearly fee, starting from £5/year for unwaged.)
Candidates can nominate themselves and are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org with their name, address, the position(s) for which they wish to stand, and a 100-word statement by the end of Friday 4 November 2016. Individuals may stand for, but not hold, multiple positions.
It is envisioned that those elected will hold office for a period of a year and shall be eligible to stand for re-election.
Candidates must be members of an Oxfordshire constituency and spend at least 50% of their time per year in Oxfordshire.
Candidates will be advertised from Saturday 5 November on both the Facebook group and in an email to members.
This meeting is open to Labour members, affiliated supporters, and those who support the aims and values of the Labour Party, who are not members of other political parties (except the Co-Operative Party, which has an electoral agreement with Labour).
