At the AGM on the 30th of June we elected four branch officers for the South Lanarkshire Green Party:

There are a number of additional roles that the branch will need filled for the coming year, and over the next few weeks we’ll be contact you with information on what they are, what needs done and how to get involved. Stay tuned for more info.
 
Political Strategy Meeting – Are You Interested?
 
Given the unprecedented political situation at present, the branch intends to hold a political strategy meeting to discuss our path forward and learn from past experience. The first half of this meeting will focus on reviewing the Holyrood 2016 campaign to develop best practice, while the second half will focus entirely on the elections ahead. The intent is to develop a roadmap through to the 2017 Council elections and beyond, and to plan strategically for how we can achieve good results at the polls.
