The Socialist Party's North West region held a very successful conference on Saturday 2 February, with nearly 50 members attending from across the region.
Rob Williams from the party's executive committee introduced a useful debate on the current political situation in Britain, which focussed on Brexit and the trade unions.
The afternoon's workshops on recruitment, local elections, trade unions, and finance were all well-attended. Regional reports were well-received, and the regional officers were re-elected unanimously.
The enthusiasm of members for building the party was shown not only in the financial appeal, which raised very nearly £1,000, but also in that we ran out of copies of the guide to being a branch organiser! More have been ordered, and we are in good spirits for building the party in the region in 2019.
