The 265 Project
October 7, 2016
At the 2017 Leadership kick-off event in Lethbridge this past weekend, PC President Katherine O’Neill and executive members of the Progressive Conservative Youth of Alberta – PCYA launched the 265 project.
WHAT IS THE 265 PROJECT?
The 265 Project is a joint initiative between PC Alberta and Progressive Conservative Youth of Alberta (PCYA). The goal is to ensure all 265 elected delegate positions set aside for youth PC members are filled heading into the leadership convention on March 18, 2017 in Calgary. Our team will work closely with all 87 constituency associations and the two campus clubs to achieve this goal and attract more youth to the party. Youth delegate spots are available to PC members between 14-26 years old. Delegate conventions are currently rare in Canadian politics. The last time the PC Party held a delegate convention to elect our leader was in 1985. Before that, you have to go back to 1965 when about 400 PC delegates gathered in Edmonton to elect Peter Lougheed.
WHO ARE WE:
The 265 Project is headed up by PC President Katherine O’Neill, PCYA executives Sonia Kont and Emily Gilroy and a team of volunteers.
Watch out for the 265 Project information nights in your community and online at www.pcalberta.org. We will provide youth with details about PC Alberta and how they can become an elected youth delegate at the leadership convention next March. Our team will also help constituency associations attract more youth. There has never been a more exciting time to get involved with PC Alberta. There is much to do, and the party and province needs your help and enthusiasm!
