We look forward to welcoming you to CND’s 2023 Conference, where CND members — like you! — decide the direction and leadership of CND for the year ahead.

Important dates

This year we will be holding our AGM and Policy Conference on separate weekends, with the AGM taking place online on the morning of Saturday 7 October, and the Policy Conference both online and in-person in Manchester on Saturday 28 October.

Before the AGM, we elect CND’s leadership, in the form of the officers and directly elected Council members. At the AGM itself we review what CND has done centrally in the past year and review the budget for the coming year.

At the Policy Conference, we debate and decide on the pressing matters facing the campaign and how we should respond to developments in Britain and the world, which in turn sets the agenda for the work of the CND staff in the year ahead.

Full pre-conference schedule

  • Monday 31 July: Resolution deadline

AGM: Saturday 7 October 2023

This year our AGM will take place online and separate from the Policy Conference, so that CND members may also take part in the political party conferences also since scheduled for this date.

The AGM is free to attend for all company members of CND. If you’re a paid-up CND member, then you are a company member. You can also join specifically as a company member in order to attend the AGM, by completing and sending in this form (particularly this applies to members of CND Cymru, who are not automatically company members).

Register for the AGM only

If you would like to attend both the AGM and the Policy Conference, please see the section below.

Policy Conference

We’ll meet for our Policy Conference on Saturday 28 October, in Manchester and online. We’ll have extra time this year to discuss the thorny issues facing us, and those who would prefer not to make the journey can join online from the comfort of their homes.

This year we are reinstating our conference fees, but unchanged at the 2019 rate given the ongoing cost of living crisis, of £12 for individuals and £40 for groups.
