You are entitled to vote at the AGM if you have been a member of Scottish CND for at least 3 months by 20 November 2021.

Registered Local Groups and Specialist Sections are each entitled to two delegates, who must be individual members of Scottish CND. Delegates will each have a vote on behalf of their organisation, in addition to their individual vote.

You can only be a delegate for one organisation, even if you are a member of multiple groups.

Background: Action Planning for 2022

Scottish CND held an Action Planning Workshop for 2022, which will help to inform the proposals brought to the AGM. This short video includes tips and tricks for writing effective resolutions, an outline of our suggested campaign plan for 2022, and information on the omnibus executive resolution.
