The Hitchin & Harpenden Conservative Association exists to promote the aims and values of the Conservative Party in the constituency, to provide an effective campaigning organisation, to secure the return of Conservative candidates at elections and to raise the necessary funds to achieve these objectives. We also have a lot of social events, so come along and join in the fun.
The suggested minimum subscription is £25.00 and membership of the Association entitles you to a vote in the selection of candidates for Westminster; a vote in the election of Association Officers; one member, one vote in the election of the Party Leader; and the opportunity to attend Party Conference.
Our Association is keen to welcome members, whether they wish to stand for election as local councillors, become active in campaigning or simply offer us their support. Other organisations under our umbrella include:
Conservative Policy Forum. We host a regular Conservative Policy Forum alongside the Stevenage Conservative Association. This has regular meetings on a range of different topics and provides members with an excellent opportunity to influence party policy! To find out when our next Policy Forum is, please visit www.hitchinandharpendenconservatives.co.uk/policy.
The Hitchin and Harpenden Business Club aims to provide a link between the worlds of Business and Politics; to help Bim Afolami keep in close touch with the local business community and represent them in Westminster; to create a forum in which local business people can meet and exchange views and to bring top flight speakers from business and politics to the constituency.
The 250 Club. The payment of the annual subscription of £75.00 enters your name in weekly draws and twice a year a Grand Draw is held, with a free party amid lovely surroundings, with a top prize of £1,000. This Club offers you attractive prizes, two very enjoyable social events and helps the Association financially.
Young Conservatives. There is an active Young Conservatives group in Hertfordshire catering for the needs of our younger members.
