Submit your emergency motions

Motions online will go live again on 19 April for your branch to submit emergency motions and references back.

The deadline for submitting motions to our annual delegate conference was 10 March and our standing orders committee has now compiled the list of motions to be debated at this year’s conference next month.

From 19 April branches can now submit references back. This is a challenge to the standing orders report, for example the running order of motions on the agenda or where motions have been ruled out of order, or are not accepted for other reasons. If the reference back is accepted, then branch delegates will move the reference back at conference and explain why they want it. The SOC will speak for or against, then all delegates vote.

Emergency motions can also be submitted from 19 April on events or issues that have come up since the close of original motions.

Motions online will go live again for the submission of emergency motions (EM) and references back (RB) at 10am on Tuesday 19 April.

The deadline for the receipt of EMs and RBs is Friday 20 May at 3pm. Any submissions received after 20 May will be considered as late and disregarded.
