Association Officers

 

Lincoln Conservative Association is run on a voluntary basis by an elected executive.  The Executive is elected annually at the Annual General Meeting of the association – usually in the spring.  The Executive is made up of officers with specific responsibilities, by representatives from the wards that make up the constituency as well as a representative of Conservative Future.  Officers of the Association include the Chairman, and two Deputy Chairmen – a Deputy Chairman Membership & Finance and a Deputy Chairman Political and the Association Treasurer.
