As part of Alliance's commitment to encouraging increased youth representation in politics, we are running a specific information session for Alliance Youth Members to encourage them to become Council Election candidates in 2023.
This information session will cover all the basics of the role and give you an opportunity to ask any burning questions you might have. We are determined to run a candidate in every DEA in Northern Ireland - therefore, there will be lots of opportunities to get involved.
This session will cover:
- The day to day working life of a Councillor (including Council business, case work, work / life balance)
- The legal requirements to be a Councillor
- Alliance's candidate selection process
- Our expectations regarding campaigning and party involvement
I'm delighted to say that some of our recently elected Alliance Youth councillors from 2019 will be joining us to give their first hand experience of the job and to pass on their advice.
