Membership of Conservatives Abroad and the Conservative Party runs for twelve months from the date of joining. You will be invited to renew on the anniversary of your joining date.
Membership 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.
The minimum annual subscription is £25 per person for standard members. If you are a serving or retired member of the Armed Forces, you can enjoy all the benefits of membership for a minimum contribution of just £15 a year. You can choose to contribute more if you wish. You may wish to become a Patron of Conservatives Abroad and the Conservative Party, for £500 per person.
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 across the capital, and to get involved with political campaigning.
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 renew your 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.
