How does the CLP AGM work?
Constituency Annual General Meeting (AGM)
The AGM of the Leeds East CLP is usually held on the first Friday in July.
The main business of the AGM is to elect the Executive Officers and Non-Executive Officers/Coordinators. All officers must be delegates to the CLP from Members Branches or affiliated Trade Union Branches.
At least three of the following Executive Officers of the CLP (to be elected first), chair, vice-chair, vice-chair/ membership, secretary, treasurer and policy officer, must be women. At least half of all the Executive Officers must be women.
Non-Executive Officers/Coordinators are expected to attend meetings of the CLP Executive Committee to report on their activities but are not allowed to vote.
The AGM will also agree to a schedule of meetings of the CLP for the coming year, up to and including the next AGM. The CLP must meet at least 8 times in the year and at least 2 of those meetings should be policy meetings.
The CLP annual accounts for the previous calendar year will be presented for comment and approval.
Members Branches and Affiliated Trade Union Branches must be given 28 days’ notice of the CLP AGM. Delegates from Branches must be given 7 days’ notice of the AGM.
