The Secretariat is an inwards facing office within the Party, whose main jobs are communicating with the Party's membership, organising content such as blog posts and mail-outs, acting as a main point of contact for a variety of different areas to do with welfare and internal organisation of the Party (member co-ordination) and acting as the Party's Data Controller.
This office works closely with all areas of the elected NEC and aims to cultivate the relationship between the membership and the officers we elect. The Secretariat is also responsible for the authoring and publishing of any minutes from the NEC's meetings.
