‘It’s great to see so many new faces at Conference and doing remarkable things together’ – That’s what our chair, Tom Wood, said as he drew Liberal Youth Conference to a close in Leeds today.
And he’s right: when young Lib Dems get together, great things happen:
· We shape Liberal Youth’s policy. For the first time we now have policy on internships. (Read the full motion, and others here.)
· We work with other groups. NUS President Liam Burns spoke to conference about how our two organisations can work better together.
· We hold our leaders to account. Read how Party President Tim Farron spoke exclusively to Liberal Youth bloggers here.
· We’re an amazing ground campaign force. Today alone, we delivered 6,000 leaflets for the local party in Leeds, and had a lot of fun while we were at it!
Coming next: Activate! – Liberal Youth’s big training weekend in June. We’ll send you more details soon.
Next time we get together, we want you to join us.
