Conferences coming up - Federal and Scottish
By Toby Keynes, Chair, HSLD
FEDERAL CONFERENCE, YORK, FRIDAY 7th to SUNDAY 9th MARCH
As always, we hope to see you at Conference this Spring. Let us tempt you with:
The Manifesto Debate: play a part in the process of building our party's 2015 manifesto; if there are any votes on humanist or secularist issues, we'll need your support.
The Equalities Consultative Discussion, Friday afternoon: religion-based discrimination is a key equalities issue in the UK - especially when it's sponsored by the state. If you care about it, this is your chance to say so.
Faith, Science and Politics: Stir and Stand Well Back? The HSLD Event, Saturday 1pm: come to our fringe meeting, featuring an all-scientist line-up with Dr. Julian Huppert MP FRSC MInstP, Ian Swales MP BSc (Chem Eng) and Cllr Sarah Boad CSci CEng FIMMM.
The HSLD stand: the usual chance to touch base with your committee - and to join, rejoin or renew (for just £10 a year) if you're not already paid up for 2013/14.
SCOTTISH CONFERENCE, ABERDEEN, FRIDAY 28th TO SUNDAY 30th MARCH
Our Scottish members are planning a first get-together at the Scottish Conference.
Our HSLD committee doesn't have a single Scotland-based member, which means we haven't a hope of covering Scottish issues properly. Don't get angry - get active!
