Are you interested in standing and becoming a Labour councillor in Waltham Forest in 2014? Would you consider it, but want to know more about the commitment and the role?
If you want answers to these questions then why not come along to the ‘Waltham Forest Labour- So You Want To Be A Councillor?’ event organised by the Waltham Forest Labour Group on Saturday 20th April at Walthamstow Town Hall, for an afternoon dedicated to learning about becoming, and being a Labour councillor.
The afternoon will be an opportunity for people interested in becoming a councillor to meet other prospective candidates in an informal setting and to speak with current, sitting councillors about the work they do.
After registration and a light lunch, the day will begin with a campaign session where attendees will help with canvassing a key ward. This will be followed by an introduction to the selections process by the Labour Party Regional Director, perspectives from the 2010 intake on life as a councillor, a “speed dating” session with current cabinet and leading Labour councillors and an early evening reception with a key member of the Labour Party frontbench.
A more detailed programme will be available upon registration.
To attend pre-registration is required, so please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to guarantee your place.
To signal your commitment, attendance for the entire afternoon is considered essential if you are interested in taking your candidacy further. There will be a £10 charge per person to help cover costs.
