As 2017 passes into the history books as yet another extraordinary political year, I want to thank all of you for the help you have given the party.
Not only have you risen to the challenge of improving our position in local elections, but you responded fantastically to the snap General Election.
I am pleased to announce that my monthly Presidential Webinars are getting under way for 2018. Webinars are virtual seminars, that you can register for and 'dial into' using your computer, tablet or even just using a telephone. They are free and easy to access - and if you can't make a webinar, you can watch it back later on in your own time.
Over the coming year, our members' webinars will see us debating topical issues as well as discussing effective ways to campaign on local issues and how to become a candidate - and much more.
My first webinar on Tuesday 22 January is aimed at Local Party Officers and we would love you to join us.
