Progress selections training at Labour party conference 2017

September 25, 2017 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

2.30-4pm, Monday 25 September

Shortly after conference, the Labour party will start selecting in 70 seats it has identified for early selection (see below) – come and find out about the process.

Preparing for Parliamentary selections can be daunting, difficult and time consuming, but with good preparation, the barriers which may prevent Labour members from representing the Labour party at the next election are not insurmountable.

Progress has therefore developed a workshop for those who are interested in getting selected. The workshop will go through planning your campaign, considering your message and organising your campaign team. It will be led by Richard Angell. Richard is the former chair of Young Labour and is currently director of Progress. He helped with successful selection campaigns for a number of people across the country.

All Progress members are welcome but you must have been a member on the day that the training session was announced. Members who are in arrears must be paid up by the day of the event.

The seats chosen for early selection are:

Southampton Itchen; Glasgow South West; Glasgow East; Arfon; Airdrie and Shotts; Pudsey; Hastings and Rye; Chipping Barnet; Thurrock; Lanark and Hamilton East; Preseli Pembrokeshire; Motherwell and Wishaw; Inverclyde; Calder Valley; Norwich North; Broxtowe; Stoke-on-Trent South; Telford; Dunfermline and Fife West; Bolton West; Aberconwy; Northampton North; Hendon; Mansfield; Middlesbrough South and Cleveland East; Milton Keynes South; Northampton South; Pendle; Edinburgh North and Leith; Milton Keynes North; Morecambe and Lunesdale; Finchley and Golders Green; Glasgow North; Camborne and Redruth; Putney; Harrow East; Watford; Copeland; Morley and Outwood; Vale of Glamorgan; Corby; Glasgow South; Swindon South; Worcester; Crawley; Blackpool; North and Cleveleys; Dunbartonshire West; Chingford and Woodford Green; Linlithgow and Falkirk East; Reading West; Paisley and Renfrewshire North; Derbyshire North East; Carlisle; Southport; Paisley and Renfrewshire South; Glasgow Central; Rossendale and Darwen; Glasgow North West; Truro and Falmouth; Na h-Eileanan an Iar (Western Isles); Scarborough and Whitby; Walsall North; Stevenage; East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow; Carmarthen West and Pembrokeshire South; Livingston; Edinburgh East; Loughborough; Glenrothes; Cities of London and Westminster
