Over the past year, the Scottish Green Party’s membership has increased in size over seven-fold to over 8,000 people. In Edinburgh and West Lothian we now have over 2,000 members.
This phenomenal change means now is the right time to consider what structures our party needs at a local level to provide opportunities for the increased membership to engage with the party. By doing this we can better enable the party to continue to go from strength to strength in the coming months and years.
We have conducted a survey among our members, in order to help us create some options for future ways of working. These will be discussed at two discussion groups leading up to a motion being taken to and Extraordianary General Meeting on August 27th.
