We'd like to thank everyone who took part in our AGM last weekend, be it in person or through online voting. We successfully introduced a new constitution, confirmed the minutes of last year's online AGM, did some important housekeeping, and welcomed six new members to the National Executive Committee.

We had some inspiring speeches from Jacky Davis, Louise Irvine, Roseanne Edwards and Steve Williams, whose talk about the 2017 South West Surrey progressive alliance is already available online:
We'd like to thank our speakers again for inspiring us with the hope of greater cross-campaign and cross-party collaboration in the future. We hope to continue working in this cooperative spirit going into next year. After all, who knows when the next election might be?
We will be publishing more details of the conference in our December newsletter.
