- 2009 Retired Members' Conference
- 10 June 2009
- Carried as Amended
This Conference calls upon the National Executive Council to investigate the matter of conference accommodation bearing in mind the difficulties encountered at the 2008 conference venue, namely the Crowne Plaza in Glasgow, by some delegates.
The conference section had booked a number of rooms at special rates and after those had been allocated delegates were charged full rates. This caused a lot of ill feeling and it is not appropriate to put a venue on the list of conference accommodation list if the cost is exorbitant. Branches do not have a bottomless pit of cash.
