Joining Us

Poole Conservatives

We in the Poole Conservative Association aim to involve people of all ages and from all walks of life.

Here are some of the activities and opportunities we offer: 

  • Business Groups
  • Political Discussion
  • Social Clubs
  • Standing for Office
  • Campaigning Activities

Conservatives are the most open and democratic political party in Britain. After the first three months of your PCA membership, you will be entitled to a vote in Party ballots, both locally and nationally. Your membership will also give you a chance to influence Party policy by letting us know your views via many routes, including several of the clubs listed bellow.

Anyone living in the UK can join the Conservative Party. You don't have to be a registered voter or a UK national. There is no age limit on membership, although children under the age of 15 cannot be enrolled as full voting members.

As well as providing a great platform to discuss politics, Poole Conservatives has a strong social calendar of enjoyable activities offering opportunities to meet new friends and greet old ones.

    Many Poole wards have committees that organise additional events as well. We regularly hold open social receptions to "meet and greet" newcomers over a free glass of wine/alternative beverage and a buffet.
