ALDC is currently recruiting for their 2018 Future Leaders programme, which will take place at Autumn Kickstart in November (itself an excellent weekend and highly recommended for anyone with local elections next year).
The training and development programme is for Liberal Democrat activists and councillors who are hopefully going to be the party’s stars of the future. Crucially, as you might be able to guess from ALDC’s involvement, this isn’t just about Westminster and being an MP. It’s broader than that, encompassing the importance of local government and hence leadership at the local government level.
It’s a free weekend training programme (including transport, accommodation and food) thanks to money from the party’s G8 budget, and it runs alongside ALDC’s Kickstart weekend on the 23-25 November in Stone, Staffordshire.
The Future Leaders group undertakes training and development to aid their roles as key activists in their areas, helping them become ‘leaders’ of local campaigning. ALDC is particularly keen to attract young campaigners (under 30 years of age) and BAME campaigners into our 2018 group.
Please encourage people who would benefit in your local party to apply.
To apply for one of the bursaries, please send in evidence of current campaign activity along with 200 words about why you want to be considered for one of these coveted places to firstname.lastname@example.org. You must be available for the whole weekend to get the most out of the experience. The deadline is Friday 28 September at 5pm.
