There are lots of ways to get involved.

Being a member of Hitchin & Harpenden Conservative Association means that you have joined one of the most open and democratic political parties in Britain. After the first three months of your membership, you will be entitled to a vote in Party ballots. You will also have a chance to influence Party policy by letting us know your views through the Conservative Policy Forum.

Any person living in the United Kingdom is eligible to join the Conservative Party. Applicants are not required to be registered voters or UK nationals, and there is no upper or lower age limit on membership, although children under the age of 15 cannot be enrolled as full voting members.

Membership fees, donations and fundraising initiatives pay for campaigns which win elections so please give us your support to enable us to remain a strong Association able to support Bim Afolami and our councillors and candidates to deliver Conservative policies locally.
