We need you!

As a Region, we support and train Local Parties to be more effective, fight better elections, and to help engage their members. We also support campaigns financially, run New Member Welcome sessions across the Region and look after a few administrative tasks.

As an Executive, we meet 5 times a year (along with some other virtual meetings to discuss any matters arising). We also come together for our AGM, and help out with the various events we're running throughout the year.

We'd love for you to get involved, whether you have been a member for a couple of days, or for a couple of decades!

Membership Engagement Coordinator

With the recent dramatic rise in membership, we need a new volunteer officer to help our local parties welcome these new members and help them to enjoy the great experience of being effective members of the party. This role, which will be really rewarding, includes liaising with local parties to ensure they are proactively engaging with new and existing members; helping organise Region-wide events and working with our regional training officer (Jennifer Gray) on Region-led initiatives.

The key requirements for this role are enthusiasm, a willingness to help and a readiness to get stuck into a wide range of activities. A working knowledge of the Region will be useful but this can be picked on the way.

If you're interested in this role, please email help@wmlibdems.org.

Chair of Candidates

Although the esteemed Jock Gallagher is currently looking after this role, he has planned to retire, and is currently, kindly, holding onto the reigns to ensure our candidates are in tip-top shape. This role includes coordinating, approving, and training up candidates across the 59 constituencies we (currently) have in the West Midlands. You will work closely with ROs across the Region to ensure selections are fair, and that the candidates are the best, and they represent the wide range of diverse people we have in our Region.

If you're interested in this role, please email help@wmlibdems.org.

Comms Team Member

We regularly send out communications to over 5,000 members Region-wide, alongside regular updates covering Campaigns, Training and Policy. We also regularly update Local Party Executives with what the Region is doing, and what we can to support them.

We're always looking to ramp up our communications with our Members and Local Parties, as well as soliciting feedback, and moving the Region forward.

For this, we need boots on the ground to send out emails, keep an eye out on our Facebook Group and Page, and stay informed on what's happening in the Liberal Democrats. Ideally, you'd be skilled at using digital tools (Nationbuilder, Word, Excel, Text Editing), but we can support you as you settle in!
