Each Liberation or Special Interest Group has two Co-Chairs, one Executive Officer and Non-Portfolio Officers. The Liberation or Special Interest Groups can determine the number of Non-Portfolio Officers. These groups are accountable to their specific membership. You can find all the contact details for these groups on the Liberation and Special Interest GroupsĀ page.

From the general membership, regional and local/university groups can form. These are orgnaised by their committees. Regional Committees support the local and university groups in their region. The Executive Committee is also responsible for support all of these groups. Find out if there's a local, regional or university group near you on the Groups page.
