CLP Delegates at Conference

Applications for CLP Delegates are now closed.

Important: Every CLP and affiliated organisation is entitled to send delegates to Annual Conference. Delegate application packs will be sent directly to constituencies, trade unions and affiliates.

You must be elected by your organisation to attend conference as a delegate, so speak to a role holder in your constituency if you’re interested.

Each year, thousands of people attend Labour’s Annual Conference to make policy, attend some of the thousands of fringe events, and spend time with like-minded people.

CLP Delegate applications can be submitted via www.labevents.org/ac2023clpdelegate
