FCP Announce Founding Convention and Leadership Vote Date

Published on August 21, 2018

CALGARY, AB: Today the Freedom Conservative Party of Alberta (FCP) announced that it will hold its founding convention and leadership vote on October 20th in Chestermere. At the convention, members will vote on the party’s policies and constitution, elect a Board of Governors, and chose its first Leader. 

 

“We are excited to have grown in a very short period of time to the point where we can now hold our founding convention to really take our party to the next level,” said Bob Lefurgey, FCP Interim-President. “At an early-bird rate of $75 for adults and $25 for youth, our registration rates are a fraction of that of the establishment parties to make it affordable for everyday Albertans to attend.” 

 

Rules for the FCP’s leadership race will soon be announced by the Leadership Election Committee, and a process for grassroots members across Alberta to submit policy and constitutional resolutions will be announced by the Policy & Governance Committee. 

 

“Conservative Albertans deserve a party that lets them - not the leader - dictate or veto the party’s policies,” said FCP Interim-Leader Derek Fildebrandt. “In the FCP, the members hold the pen on policy and have a real grassroots guarantee that they will not be ignored.” 

 

Albertans wishing to participate must be members of the party and can register at www.freedomconservativeparty.ca/convention
