Future Women’s MP Weekend: do you want to be an MP?

The FWMPs Weekend is an exciting residential training weekend specifically designed for women who might be interested in standing for Westminster. It is run by the Campaign for Gender Balance (CGB) which is now a part of Liberal Democrat Women. Jo Swinson, Tessa Munt and Jenny Willott all started their successful quests for a seat in Parliament at a FWMPs Weekend, and so could you!

Participants will receive expert training from top trainers and Party representatives on the skills and knowledge needed to stand for parliament, personalised advice and guidance on their political career, and the chance to network with other women interested in standing.

Where: Jurys Inn, Milton Keynes Midsummer Boulevard, Milton Keynes, MK9 2HP

When: 4-5th of March 2017

Deadline: 12th February 2017

The cost of the weekend is £75. This includes accommodation, meals (breakfast, lunch & light refreshments) and training. The fee will be waived for those who are unwaged or unable to pay.
