I think the best that could be done is for some sort of regular event programme in London a la the excellent breakfasts mentioned above, and the rest of the country handled on an ad-hoc basis.Andy Peterkinnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2787283052819380346.post-58546692309865030422008-08-12T20:15:00.000+01:002008-08-12T20:15:00.000+01:00Working life has never really worked on a scale bi...Working life has never really worked on a scale bigger than City Branch.<BR/><BR/>I don't know why you are so opposed to Owen asking people what they want Working Life to be.

So the conference was split to make working life and student life, however if you think support for working life conference was zero then the support for student life conference was minus six billion. <BR/><BR/>Since it seems the oldies aren't attracted to a conference idea even when they've been segregated from the kiddies wouldn't it be worth giving a student conference a try? Or even, god forbid, a whole CF conference? Rather than ring our hands over hanging on to the young professionals who aren't rich enough to donate big sums and are too busy to spend all their time leafleting how about we put on a bit of a morale boost for the foot soldiers of the party? Students and kiddies need encouragement or else they aren't going to do all the hard work walking around the country when it's needed.Caroline Hunthttps://www.blogger.com/profile/15745105068421166688noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2787283052819380346.post-37882287972416035292008-08-11T14:54:00.000+01:002008-08-11T14:54:00.000+01:00Richard, Owen works his ass off, but not all the w...Richard, Owen works his ass off, but not all the work done by NME members is going to be high profile is it?<BR/><BR/>The freshers' packs for one, which look far better than previous efforts.Matt Lewisnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2787283052819380346.post-10407755120272763412008-08-11T13:54:00.000+01:002008-08-11T13:54:00.000+01:00"the web address www.cfwlconference.co.uk is clear..."the web address www.cfwlconference.co.uk is clearly still owned by Conservative Future"<BR/><BR/>Odd thing to say.Lucynoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2787283052819380346.post-57280049429830195712008-08-11T13:50:00.000+01:002008-08-11T13:50:00.000+01:00He doesn't really seem to do much, does he, Owen?He doesn't really seem to do much, does he, Owen?Richard Mnoreply@blogger.com
