Momentum Convention 2024. Your movement, your choice. Sunday 10th March. https://mtm.is/convention

Last updated 19/02/2024 

While the Labour Leadership stifles members’ voices and erodes party democracy, we at Momentum are putting power back where it belongs – in the hands of our members. So, as part of our Refounding Momentum reforms, Momentum will be hosting our first ever members’ convention.

The convention will take place online on Sunday 10th March 2024. In line with our constitution, all members will be given the chance to debate and decide on campaigns and strategic priorities for the organisation, as well as the possibility of agreeing any constitutional amendments to go to a full-members’ vote.

If you’re a member, sign up below for a free place at our convention.

If you’re not a Momentum member, join us today and have your say in Britain’s largest democratic socialist organisation. Registration is open until Sunday 3rd March.

As planned elections to Momentum’s National Coordinating Group this year have been postponed due to intense activity within Labour, the convention provides the opportunity for socialists up and down the country to come together, debate, discuss and chart the next steps for our movement. Please see below for more details on the process for members to introduce motions for debate, and when the prioritisation ballot for these motions will occur.

Motions process

The deadline to submit motions is now closed.

In line with the Momentum Constitution, and following the Refounding Momentum reforms, members were be able to decide and debate the big questions facing us as an organisation at the upcoming Convention, from what we campaign for to how we organise for socialism. The Momentum Convention Arrangements Committee will publish details of the exact arrangements closer to the time.

  • Motions were divided into three categories: constitutional amendments, strategic priorities and campaigns
  • All individual members, local groups and affiliates were able to submit up to one motion from each category 
  • The window for motions to be submitted was from the 1st February to the 18th February 2024
  • Motions will be composited by the CAC, ahead of an all-member priority ballot end Feb/early March
