Delegates & resolutions
This year, 4 delegates have been elected to represent individual members at the ALDE Party Congress.

According to Individual Membership Rules 3.4-3.7 individual member delegates to the Congress submit resolutions and amendments. Delegates are expected to closely coordinate resolutions, amendments and voting decisions with the members of the Steering Committee. Resolutions are drafted in a democratic and collective process involving a minimum of 20 members. A limited number of resolutions will be selected by all paid-up members through a vote. A vote took place in July.
Amendments to draft resolutions are developed by the delegates, the Steering Committee and thematic working groups. The delegates take into account the political context and the amount of amendments in selecting the ones put forward to the Congress.
Fringe meetings for individual members
Individual members will have several dedicated "fringe" meetings at the ALDE Party Congress.
One of those meetings will be the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Individual Members which provides a forum to discuss the activities of the previous year and plans for the upcoming year. The Annual General meeting will take place on Thursday 8 November from 16h00-19h00.
The Steering Committee will communicate directly with the country coordinators about the exact timing of their dedicated meeting, which is scheduled on Thursday 8 November from 11-13h00 (for coordinators only).
