The AGM will commence at 1pm, and is expected to finish around 6pm. Light refreshments will be served during proceedings.

NOTE: due to late demand, the NCC have amended the Party’s Constitution to allow the deadline for submission of electoral nominations and resolution submissions to be put back to Saturday 22 November, 2008, rather than 15 November, 2008, as stated on the forms below.
