Officers & Steering Committee

The President, Vice-Presidents and the Steering Committee members are elected at National Conference. The Steering Committee in turn elects the national Officers Group of the Coalition.


The late and very much missed Tony Benn was the Stop the War president until his death on 14 March 2014. A new president has yet to be appointed.
