Dear Naresh Sagar
|Message from the Chairman|
|I take this opportunity to write to all our candidates,supporters and volunteers to update you on our progress over the last 3 months.
First of all thank you.
It has been an incredibly busy three months and our achievement is just short of sensational!
We have formed a social media team of young people to drive Renew forward, and we now have 13,000 followers on twitter from a base of 3,000 in February. We have refreshed our current website with updated information and we are building a new platform to improve our communications and data management.
We have been crowdfunding particular activities, organising political events and going on marches.
We are in the process of appointing coordinators across the UK and Europe. The purpose of appointing coordinators is to galvanise local support and arrange regional events. We have appointed a coordinator in France to look after our Brits Abroad, with hundreds already supporting Renew in France.We have also fought the local elections in 16 wards and in our three targeted wards we took 10% of the votes.
So what is is store for the next 3 Months?
We will start training potential candidates in campaigning, media management and practical skills.
We have grown from a few to thousands and the governance structure we developed 8 months ago needs to be updated to reflect this. We have set up a Working Group to develop a new Constitution and a Code of Conduct.
We plan a national Conference in the Autumn.
We will make more of an impact, we will take part in more events, write more letters and articles to your local MP and media, we will call in more radio stations as a Renew Supporters and we will get more people to fill out thesurvey on line. We will change British politics for the better.
