On the fourth Thursday of every month, from 7.30-9.30pm, we have all member meetings. This means ANYONE who is a paid up member of the Labour Party in Hackney South can come along, debate and vote on issues, and elect who runs that Labour Party locally and who represents us at national and regional conferences. These meetings are also a chance to question our local MP Meg Hillier and Mayor Phil Glanville. In June our meeting will be our AGM at which we elect the executive committee.
