Get involved with UKIP in Bath & North East Somerset
Become a Branch Member
Every member makes a difference to the Branch and our ability to campaign in the Bath & North East Somerset area.
When you join UKIP, members who live in our two constituencies automatically become members of Bath & North East Somerset Branch too. We are fortunate to have an energetic and ambitious team of local campaigners but we are always keen to welcome more hands on deck.
When you join UKIP, you receive a membership card, information pack and access to members’ online resources. You will be able to participate in local UKIP activities, meet other UKIP supporters and vote at local branch meetings
Members receive personal invitations to national events, and a regular full colour Newsletter. Additionally, all our Branch members receive a regular local email newsletter with political news, and invitations to meet up for campaign activities, meetings and social events.
Using electronic communication ensures that we do not waste scarce campaign funds on postage, stationery and administration. Our preferred means of communication with Branch Members is email. We do not have the resources to use “snail mail” other than in exceptional circumstances. Therefore it is essential that all Branch members supply us with an email address if they wish to keep up to date.
Membership entitles you to play an active part in selecting members of the Party’s National Executive Committee and UKIP’s candidates for Local, National and some other elections.
Membership entitles you to attend Party conferences (subject to qualifying period).
Members under 30 automatically become members of the Party’s youth wing, Young Independence (also known as YI).
As a UKIP member, you can become involved with and help the Branch as much or as little as you wish. There is no obligation to participate; some members simply pay their subscription and do no more; though it would be nice to see you occasionally at our local meetings. All participation is strictly voluntary with each individual deciding how much time, if any; they wish to devote to party activities.
If you want your voice heard in Bath & North East Somerset, share our values, would like to be part of our friendly, local team and make a difference, all you have to do is join on-line here. If you prefer, you can download a membership form here
