Changes to the Membership Incentive Scheme
Originally published by UK Liberal Democrats
Since its launch in 2013, the Membership Incentive Scheme has helped our party not just grow, but thrive.
The money from it has helped local parties grow their membership, fight campaigns and demand better for their communities.
In recent years, we've seen a worrying trend developing though. More and more local parties stopped actively recruiting new members.
This is concerning - because part of the original intent of the scheme was to help build strong, local teams that would win elections.
At the request of the relevant State Party Committees, we have therefore been exploring options to revise the current incentive scheme.
