|The New National CF Executive 2010-11|
I'm pleased to announce that three new members will be joining the Conservative Future National Executive.
In the past when the National Chairman wanted to co-opt people onto the National Executive it was done behind close doors. This is the first time that Conservative Future has elected these positions and as long as you were a CF member you were eligible to stand.
14 candidates threw themselves into the ring for three positions which is remarkable and shows just how many members want to get actively involved with the body of Conservative Future.
The campaign lasted 10 days and I received lots of calls and emails as one of the voters.
I wished everyone good luck and am pleased that I now have some more people to work with on the executive as there is a lot to do!
The winners were; Serene John-Richards, Peter Smallwood and Louise Powell and I'm pleased to be working with them over the coming year. All of them have a long history of campaigning and working hard for the party during local, general and European elections.
They were strong candidates and commiseration's to all those that did not win. I know that they will stay involved and there will be lots of opportunities in the future for them to get stuck into!
On our website Ben said: "Many congratulations to those that won their elections and I look forward to working with you...commiseration's to those that have unfortunately not made their positions. It was a really close election and there will be plenty of other opportunities to get involved in the future.
This is a great day for CF, democratic elections allowing people to get more involved with campaigns, events and social action. These elections truly show a new CF is here. We have a diverse team that shows CF is representative of modern Britain - showing that young people are really keen to get involved in politics."
A big congratulations to Augustine Chipungu who got elected to the position of Eastern Regional Chairman. I look forward to working with him also.
Our National Executive team now is made up of four women and three men. This is the first time in CF's history that a National Executive has more women than men on it and shows how much has changed over the years.
