Labour Humanists AGM – Wednesday 30 October

September 28th, 2013 | Posted by Editor in Events

We will be holding our Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Wednesday 30 October, 18.20 – 18.35*, Camden Town Hall, Judd Street London WC1H 9JE. Please RSVP info@labourhumanists.org.uk

Following the AGM from 18.45, we have organised a meeting with some fantastic speakers, who will be discussing ‘Selective faith schools: should Labour care?’ We would be delighted if you would join us for a glass of wine or a soft drink after the meeting.

Officers & Executive Committee
We are organised by a small group of volunteers and we work in different ways to raise awareness and understanding of our position, on behalf of our members. For example, in the past year or so we have:

  • grown our membership
  • launched a brand new website and increased our online presence and campaigning through Twitter
  • held a packed out ‘no prayer breakfast’ fringe event at Labour conference 2012
  • been represented on BBC One’s The Big Questions to discuss secularism
  • worked closely with Labour’s front bench and briefed Labour MPs and Peers to reform the law to allow equal humanist marriage
  • written articles published on LabourList and politics.co.uk on faith schools admissions

We are pleased that, on behalf of our members, we have been able to raise the profile of key humanist and secularist issues within Labour. Our constitution allows us formally to elect officers (Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer) and up to five more members of an Executive Committee at our AGM.

In terms of the Executive Committee, we would welcome nominations from our members to help to grow and lead Labour Humanists. To nominate yourself, simply email chair@labourhumanists.org.uk with no more than 100 words about why you would be interested in being an Officer or a member of the Executive Committee (and state which). If we have more nominations than spaces, we will elect by a show of hands at the AGM.

Volunteering for the committee would be a great opportunity to get more involved and help to influence Labour policy on key humanist and secularist issues.

In addition to electing Officers and members of the Executive Committee, we will have copies of our accounts available, and discuss our plans for the coming year – a crucial one as Labour develops its policies.

One of our aims is to increase our membership – to build our voice and to become eligible to become an affiliated socialist society to the Labour Party. If you are not already a member, please do consider joining, and encourage others to do so too.

Only members may participate at the AGM; all are welcome to the faith school admissions meeting.
