The Committee members (Officers and Ordinary Members) are elected annually, and the Exec then meets every few weeks throughout the year, with the venue alternating between the three main Wealden towns - Uckfield, Crowborough and Hailsham. Since March 2020, due to the COVID situation, the meetings have mostly been taking place virtually using Zoom video conferencing.

Within the Wealden Executive there are also several smaller working groups, such as Campaigns and Fundraising & Events. Baroness Kate Parminter with Wealden Lib Dem Chair James Partridge, 2021 AGM

Our last AGM was held on October 23, 2021 at 10am in Uckfield. We were fortunate to have as our special guest speaker the Liberal Democrat peer Baroness Kate Parminter (pictured with our chairman James Partridge) after which the meeting itself was held, including the nomination and election of the officers and ordinary executive members for the year 2022 (listed above).

If you are interested in joining the Executive, or wish to volunteer, know more about it and learn how to get involved, please do get in touch at: info@wealdenlibdems.org.uk
