Issue 34: Your Chance to Shape Equity Policy at the ARC

Dear __NAME__

March Branch Meeting - Shape Equity's National Policies!

The next branch meeting will take place at 2pm on 7th March 2016. 
The location is The Pinnacle, 67 Albion Street, Leeds, LS1 5AA. 

We will be discussion motions for the Annual Representative Conference and plans for the future of the Cast It In Yorkshire Campaign. 

Do you have a burning issue you'd like Equity to take up nationally? This is your chance to shape Equity's national policies. Let us know by phone, email or at the Branch meeting on 7th March. 

For the last two years YRGB has not been able to send a motion to the ARC due to not being quorate. We need at least 10 members at the meeting to change this! Let's start to make a difference in 2016! 

We'd love to hear from you!

To respond to this anything in this newsletter or contact YRGB please call or email the Branch Secretary Robert Kelso via  equity.yrgb@gmail.com or 0113 226 3246.
