Buckingham Liberal Democrats

What's the role?

Managing your local party's membership is a big task, but is also a highly rewarding one. It suits well organised people with great personal skills.

You are the main point of contact for most members, making sure that they are involved with the Lib Dem community where you live. You welcome new members to the Local Party and signpost them where possible.
You will arrange events for them to attend and get them involved with campaigning. You've also got the important job of keeping your members up to date with their payments, and are the local party lead on recruiting more members. You manage membership via our Membership Database Portal called Lighthouse and you also ensure our Campaign Database Portal 'Connect' is reconciled with your membership.
