Event description


Our 2nd annual conference promises to be a lively event. It is our first policy conference where we get to discuss key themes that underpin the Social Democrats vision for a better, fairer Ireland.

We’ll be exploring key concerns which keep coming up on the door steps – areas such as healthcare, housing and childcare – and there’ll be opportunities to hear new ideas from branches on how we develop the Party, build the movement and tackle emerging issues. We’ll also be electing the Party Chair, vice Chair and National Executive.

We look forward to seeing you at the Conference - it's a great opportunity for all members to come together to shape our future.
