As you may have heard, the NDP Federal Convention is coming up on April 9-11.
We are calling a General Meeting of the Parkdale—High Park Federal NDP to discuss and vote on policy resolutions on Sunday, January 31, 2-4pm. This meeting will take place online, and the link will be sent once you RSVP and your membership is confirmed.
Resolutions can add, amend or delete items from NDP policy, amend the Party Constitution, direct the Party to take a specific action, or have the Party make a statement on an ongoing issue. You can access the current federal policy book here. More details on rules, formatting, and word limits can be found here.
Before resolutions can be submitted to Convention, they must be passed by our local riding association. If you wish to submit a resolution for consideration, it must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than January 25, 11:59pm.
We will compile resolutions and circulate them ahead of our meeting on January 31.
If you wish to attend Convention as a delegate, stay tuned — our riding’s delegate selection will happen at our AGM in late February, along with elections for next year’s Executive.
Note: you must be a current NDP member in good standing of Parkdale-High Park in order to attend and vote. Advance registration is required in order to verify membership status. Unfortunately, due to our online meeting/voting platform, non-voting observers are not allowed at this time.
