2015 Annual General Meeting

Members only: your chance to shape and quiz the leadership of UKIP Watford

Note: this piece has been written by UKIP Watford Chairman Jon Goddard 

As a valued member of UKIP Watford, you are invited to attend the Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, October 27 at 7.30pm. This event will be held at the Watford Town & Country Club, Halsey House, Rosslyn Road, Watford, Hertfordshire WD18 0JX.

This meeting is being convened to provide you with an update on branch activity from the committee,
a chance to meet with fellow UKIP Watford members, and to vote in the annual elections for
Watford Town & Country Club
Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary.

If you would like to put your name forward as a candidate for any of these positions, please contact me. In order to be able to stand for any of these posts it is a requirement that a candidate has a seconder. If your seconder cannot be present at the meeting, a signed and dated written note will be required in advance or produced on the night to confirm the support.

All those standing will be entitled to a five-minute address to the Membership.

On behalf of the UKIP Watford committee we look forward to seeing as many members as possible taking part in this important procedural event.

Democracy Roadshows Underway!

Your chance to come and listen to both sides of the "Leave / Remain" debate

Between now and December there are nine "Democracy Debates" taking place in our region. The topic is the mooted EU Referendum and the debates will see two "Leave" speakers pitted against two "Remain" ones. The speakers will be from various political parties; UKIP's representatives will include Patrick O'Flynn, Suzanne Evans etc.
Hertford Corn Exchange

At the start of each debate the audience will be asked for their stance; at the end they will be asked again, which will help us to gauge whether the debates are changing people's minds (for good or bad!)

The full list of dates and venues is here; the closest venue to us is on 4th November at the Hertford Corn Exchange. The event is free of charge but you still need to book to confirm your place. This must be done here.

It would be good to have a healthy contingent from UKIP Watford there to bolster our speakers. Please get in touch if you need a lift or - even better - you are prepared to offer one!
