The Citizens UK Leadership Team, 25 leaders drawn from across 15 Chapters, have been meeting on video conference monthly for the last 5 months and helping to shape the plans for this important action.
Turnout & travel: We are asking each Chapter to send between 5-10 leaders and at least 1 Organiser. Off-peak train fares for those outside of London will be funded and purchased centrally (please let firstname.lastname@example.org know who will be attending), or we can cover petrol if people could come in groups in cars.
- Relationships between leaders across the 15 Chapters.
- Training sessions on running an effective Leadership Group and on Organising Money.
- Decision-making on our strategy and campaign priorities ready for a General Election.
Preparation in advance:
- Come with a power analysis of the Parliamentary Constituencies in your area, including where you think you could hold Accountability Assemblies or have diverse delegations negotiate with candidates.
- Identify the key issues your Chapter would want to push at a UK level, and the local issues you would want to raise with your candidates.
- Request a meeting with your local MP(s) at 5pm on 15th October in Westminster.
