In-person branch meetings:
Our branch meetings are the main place members discuss political ideas and organise our work. That makes them incredibly important. Following the National Council branches should collectively discuss and decide how they can be part of this national strategy. In-person branch meetings will provide the best forum for that. Re-establishing face-to-face branch meetings may require an energetic search for venues, it may take a bit of discussion among members to work it out, and we may have to maintain a Zoom element where appropriate and necessary. In a few branches with members dispersed over a wide area it may not be possible every week. But in-person branch meetings provide the best means to organise effectively and we should move as far as possible in that direction.
