It is an honour and privilege for me to welcome you into the British Italian Conservatives Group and we are excited to have you as part of our membership. Membership is a lifelong journey and we look forward to working together towards a fruitful and eventful future.
This Group is the culmination of an enormous collective effort which began in 2014 when individuals contributed in one form or another towards developing it into a national Group. Thank you for all of your commitment, enthusiasm and determination. Special gratitude to Christian Vinante Giovannini, the heart and soul of the Italian Conservatives. Christian has built up the Group from the ground up, conceiving all events of the group and becoming one of the most active members of the Party. The main purpose of the British Italian Conservative Group is to raise funds for the party, and for the local community to work closely with their local constituency. Additionally, the Group aims to set up a study group and to give expression to ideas and views on Conservative policy. What is more, The Group will support the Conservative Party and assist with its campaigns. This way we can facilitate a bilateral bridge for the benefits of all BIC Group members and local communities.
The objective, role and function of the Group is to promote the Conservative Party values within the British Italian community, and act as activists to support local and national candidates. This will be achieved by campaigning with local candidates and organising events to raise funds for the Conservative Party.
Allow me to take this opportunity to inform you that our Annual General Meeting will take place on the 12 March 2019. During this meeting we will discuss many important elements of the future development of the Group, such as participation at the Conservative Party Conference, arranging other events throughout the year, the AGM in October during the Conservatives Congress, dates of Executives Committee meetings and much more.
We look forward to seeing you at many developing British Italian Conservatives Group events and initiatives in the future! 2018 was eventful for us, to say the least, and we look forward to 2019 when a new chapter will open before us where we expect to go above and beyond.
Welcome to the British Italian Conservative Group!
