Charter for a Democratic Conference

1. At least 50% of conference time should be reserved for contributions in policy debates by delegates

· At last years conference, time was allocated as follows: Platform speeches (including Leader’s Q&A & US Professor) 50%, sofa panels 8%, Delegates (moving motions & debate) 18%, awards/obits 4%, conference arrangements/voting/admin 4%, Policy Forum seminars 16%.

· The balance between PR exercises and the opportunity for debate and decision-making is wrong - showcasing PPCs does not have to happen at the conference rostrum.

· Conference doesn’t have to be entirely in public – some sessions could be members only without press.

· Delegates contributions matter most and are given least time – the fringe is the right place for panel discussions and videos.

· CLPs have voted with their feet – 1 in 4 CLPs absent in spite of free passes – using the full weekend would improve attendance.

· Speakers should be randomly chosen by the Chair, subject to ensuring balance of CLP/union and gender.
