Our Constituency Labour Party

The Constituency Labour Party, or CLP, is the hub for local party activity, made up from Labour members in our constituency. Our constituency stretches from Folkestone to the east, to New Romney to the west, and the Elham Valley to the north.

The CLP is run on a day-to-day level by a group of elected officers which is called theExecutive Committee (EC). The officers are chosen each year at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) by our local membership. This group is responsible for taking decisions in between the All Members’ Meetings, or as an executive body in its own right.

We hold regular meetings to which every member in our constituency is invited to debate current issues.

All Members’ Meetings (AMM) are held on the third Saturday in January, March, May, July, September, November and December.

Labour Party Rules

The CLP follows the model rules and standing orders as set out in the National Rulebook: these guide our work and the way in which meetings are arranged to ensure we are as effective as possible.
