The Conference Agenda
The following business will comprise the Conference timetable:
• The National Executive Committee (NEC) Report and possible late NEC statements that can be issued to delegates during conference.
• Reports from the six policy commissions, together with separate annex reports, which will cover the progress (or otherwise) that has been made at the relevant Policy Commission in relation to each of the Contemporary Issue subjects remitted at the 2008 Annual Conference.
• Contemporary Issue subjects and Emergency Motions that cover matters that would not otherwise appear on the conference agenda.
• A report of the recent review and consultation that has been carried out in relation to the changes to Conference procedures that were agreed at the 2007 Annual Conference (“Extending and Renewing Party Democracy”).

• Proposed rule changes from the NEC and from CLPs. (The rule change proposals from CLPs were submitted last year, but by convention are not tabled until this year. This convention does not apply to rule change proposals from the NEC).
• Elections for the Conference Arrangements Committee (CAC) and National Constitutional Committee (NCC).
