Time: 19:00 -21:00
Date: 21 November 2016
Venue: Embassy Cafe, Cathays Community Centre, CF24 4HX
The evening of 21 November 2016 will see one of the most important annual events in the Cardiff and Vale Green Party Calendar - our AGM. There'll be motions to debate and vote on, new policy to make and new directions to set, along with new officers and commitee members to appoint.
This is a truly crucial AGM for us, because the vitally important 2017 local elections are only six months away. The AGM is your chance to join in debate and cast votes that could help us win council seats next spring and also succeed at our chosen areas of campaigning and other activism. Of course, you could come along and stand for office yourself, and bring your own skills, talents, and drive into the equation - perhaps making a very real difference to our election results and other work.
