Annual Conference 2021

Welcome

In 2021 we are returning to Brighton from Saturday 25 to Wednesday 29 September.

With inspiring speeches, invaluable training and an events timetable that makes the most of every minute, it’s a real opportunity to be a part of democracy in action.

Keep checking this page for programme announcements, application launches and important information.

We recognise the huge challenges we continue to face during the current global pandemic. The health and safety of all of those who attend and work at Annual Conference is of the utmost importance to us as an organisation. We will continue to play our part in society’s efforts to tackle this global challenge, while moving forward with the constitutional requirements of holding Annual Conference in person this year. It is our continued hope and focus that we will be able to meet in person however we will work in line with the government restrictions at the time and continue to update our attendees to any changes or considerations that will need to be put in place as part of these restrictions.
