Victorian Young Labor Conference
All Victorian Young Labor members are invited to attend the Annual Victorian Young Labor Conference, which takes place annually on the first weekend in August, at the New Council Chambers of Trades Hall, 54 Victoria Street, Carlton South.
The conference is an exciting opportunity for all members of Victorian Young Labor to come together to discuss and debate a variety of issues that will formulate official Victorian Young Labor policy for the coming year.
It features a number of social events, and we are joined by a variety of guest speakers, the details of which will be circulated closer to the event.
We run a participatory model, entitling all Victorian Young Labor members with three months continuous membership to vote for their representatives and participate in the Conference. If non-members or ineligible members are interested in attending, provisions can be made. Please contact the VYL President if you are interested.
Under the new Victorian Young Labor model, all financial members of the Victorian Branch under the age of 26 on 1 January with three months continuous membership at 2 August 2014 can register to vote and participate in the Conference.
