Our first ever conference takes place this month (in a fortnight in fact). Called Liberty, Equality and the State we are aiming to look at policy and do some thinking about some pretty fundamental issues.
It is a Lib Dem led conference and it does include Simon Hughes, Vince Cable and Chris Huhne but we also have speakers from other parties and none.
The event takes place down in London (although we hope in future to have satellite events for people who can't travel quite so far).
I agreed to chair a session. In fact I am doing the kick off plenary which features Simon Hughes, Will Hutton, Neal Lawson and James Graham. Its a sort of scene setting/agenda setting bit which should lead in well to the workshops.
Quite a few of the tickets have already gone, but if you want to find out more about the conference, the SLF website is here
