Event description
Meet like-minded members, hear how you can help Greens be in the room with decision makers and help us leaflet our winnable constituency.

About this Event

This is not just our regular regional conference, it's also a chance to help leaflet in what is now our target constituency of Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket. Now that a General Election is on it's even more important to come along. We will still be running all the sessions in the afternoon but anyuone who wishes to leaflet in the afternoon as well is able to.

Are you a new member looking to get more involved and help us win seats?

Are you a local party committee member looking for some fresh ideas, and meeting some new faces, and looking to see how you can get more people locally to help?

Are you a new councillor, or even one of long standing, looking to see how others have dealt with the aggressive opposition and the difficulty of getting things done?

Are your skills under-utilised in your local party and are you looking to fill some of the roles we need at a regional level - such as encouraging local parties to build capacity, getting more councillors elected, getting more coverage with the local and regional press and TV?

Then this is the conference for you.
