Membership of Conservatives Abroad is administered by the Cities of London & Westminster Conservative Association (CLWCA) in conjunction with Conservative Campaign Headquarters (CCHQ). By joining CLWCA as an overseas member, you become a member of Conservatives Abroad and of the Conservative Party.
As an overseas member, you are entitled to all the benefits of party membership, including participation in the Conservative Policy Forum, attendance at party conferences and a vote in the election of the party leader.
As a Conservatives Abroad member, you will be invited to join video conferences with UK Parliamentarians, receive political briefings and attend the Conservatives Abroad Annual Conference. Should you be in London, as a member of CLWCA you will be most welcome to attend social and networking events in London, and to get involved with political campaigning.
Annual Membership is per person and the minimum if you are a serving or retired member of the Armed Forces is £15. Standard membership for people who are not a current or former member of the Armed Forces is £25. If you are not on the electoral register in the UK, the maximum is £500. We accept all major credit/debit cards including American Express, JCB, Mastercard and Visa. You can also pay via Paypal.
You do not have to be eligible to vote in the UK to join the Conservative Party or Conservatives Abroad.
If you are already a member of a Conservative Association, you are able to join Conservatives Abroad through CLWCA as well as retaining your current membership, or you can choose to transfer your current membership to CLWCA. It is only possible to join Conservatives Abroad through CLWCA.
