Spring is coming, and so is the NDP PEI annual convention! The theme this year, Changing Democracy, challenges party members to consider how we can work effectively with our allies in the community to ensure that everyone is included and has a voice – and how we can best influence public policy and actions so that they reflect the values of the community.
We are very pleased to announce that Lorraine Michael, Leader of the NDP in Newfoundland and Labrador and MHA for Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi, will be our guest speaker.
Besides being provincial party leader, Ms Michael has spent the last forty years working as an activist for gender, social, and economic justice – we look forward to welcoming her to Prince Edward Island!
According to our constitution, the annual convention is the governing body of the party – it’s at convention that policy & constitutional resolutions are discussed and approved. Policy resolutions can be put forward by:
Provincial Council and Executive;
New Democratic Youth;
New Democratic Women;
The deadline for submitting resolutions is March 27. They may be emailed to the resolutions committee, c/o Ann Wheatley firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration fees for the convention are 20.00 and 10.00 (unwaged).
