At its November 6 meeting the Socialist Alliance National Executive settled the delegate ratio for our Sixth National Conference.
The National Executive voted by majority that the conference delegate ratio should be one delegate to eight financial members (or greater part thereof).
That decision gives the following table of financial membership to conference delegates:
|Number of financial members||Number of delegates|
|4 — 11||1|
|12 — 19||2|
|20 — 27||3|
|28 — 35||4|
|36 — 43||5|
|44 — 51||6|
|52 — 59||7|
|60 — 67||8|
Branches may, of course, elect more delegates than these numbers, with the view of rotating delegates through the various conference sessions. This enables members who have particular expertise and interest in a topic to be seated as a delegate for the session that concerns that topic.
Any concerns about delegate elections should be directed to the Socialist Alliance National Office (national_office at socialist-alliance dot org, 02 9690 2508 or 0433 390 872).
