Conference Caucuses

Back to all Motions

2014 National Retired Members Conference
11 June 2014

Conference recalls that caucuses for black members, disabled members, lesbian, gay, bisexual & transgender members and women members were introduced to the programme of this conference in 2009.

Conference confirms that the caucuses make a valuable contribution to the conference but believes their arrangements could be improved.

Conference therefore instructs the National Retired Members’ Committee to:

1. Consider whether Tuesday could be re-arranged to give each caucus more than half an hour;

2. Consider how to publicise the caucuses and their purpose more effectively, promote participation and make clear they are an integral part of the conference; and,

3. Arrange for caucuses to make reports, for the committee to consider and respond to them and for the reports and responses to be available, say with the committee’s annual report.
