Hilton at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton
Annual conference is the supreme authority of the Defence Police Federation (DPF). It is convened once a year usually in June. All properly elected branch representatives are entitled to attend.
The main business of conference is to consider the stewardship of the Federation by the National Executive Committee (NEC), as stated by them in the DPF Annual report. Conference may question the NEC and either accept or reject each aspect of the report as presented to them by the National Officers or by the NEC portfolio holder.
It is conference that determines the policies of the Federation. Policies are usually decided by means of resolutions that originate from our branches or from the NEC. These resolutions are voted on by conference collectively and if successful, go on to form policy.
The most recent reorganisation of the Federation also determined that the delegates to conference should have the ability to raise resolutions from the floor.
The Conference and Standing Orders Committee decide the arrangements for annual conference and conference proceedings.
