The NEC is elected every three years and, following changes to the structure of the NEC agreed at the Party’s AGM in 2022 and elections in Spring 2023, the new NEC met for the first time for a full weekend of induction and the AGM in June.

You can find details of the NEC on the Party’s website here: NEC Members – Co-operative Party

Jim McMahon MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs was re-elected as Chair of the Party.  Ruth Hall, who represents Scotland on the NEC, was elected Vice-Chair.

The NEC elected members to serve on the Audit, Policy, Staffing & Remuneration and Disputes Sub Committees and also discussed quarterly reports (see General Secretary’s and recruitment & membership report below) and membership subscriptions for 2024.
