Each year there are two important Conferences across the Party Calendar; NSW Labor Annual Conference and Country Labor Conference, and once every three years, National Conference. The weekends are full of dynamic policy debate. Delegates are elected from Affilated Unions, SECs and FECs. All Party members are welcome to attend as an Observer.
Are you 26 or under? Young Labor also holds a Mid-Year, Annual and Country Conference you can participate in. Young Labor Conferences are an excellent way to introduce yourself to Party activities. By getting involved your ideas will help shape NSW Labor Youth Policy and you will be part of the largest Youth Movement in Australia.
Young Labor has also re-established the Young Labor Youth Council, where a policy motion is debated and voted on by Youth Council.
McKell Dinner & Awards
Members are the lifeblood of NSW Labor. Many dedicate endless hours of their time to the Labor Movement. Launched in 2001, the McKell Dinner and Awards honour the invaluable contribution of Party Members to the cause.
Named after the popular and successful NSW Premier Wiliam McKell, who later become Governor General of the Commonwealth of Australia the evening also is a great evening for Party Members, Parliamentarians, Labor Leaders and former Leaders to come together.
