Virtual Autumn Conference

ALDES is planning a wide variety of online Autumn Conference events. The Party is hosting Conference from Friday, September 25th – Monday the 28th; ALDES will be organizing events both during and around these dates, with some preliminary themes as follows:

  • Discussion and social sessions with the Young Liberals
  • Digital and data panel discussion with Q&A
  • The ALDES AGM (see below)
  • Diversity and inclusivity in STEM

If there are any ideas floating about that you’d like to see us tackle – as always, get in touch 🙂

ALDES AGM 2020 – Be on the Exec!

If you’re interested in being involved with the ALDES exec in 2021, we’ll be hosting our AGM around the Autumn Conference (date TBC – likely to be held after Conference to maximize potential participation). Positions up for election will include:

  • Chair
  • Vice-Chair
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Digital Officer
  • Membership Officer
  • Flexible committee positions based on skills and enthusiasm

And of course, you don’t have to stand for election to be involved in all of ALDES’ goings-on – just get in touch for more information, thoughts, and anything else.
