Annual Legislative Exchange to the US in conjunction with the US Department of State and the American Embassy London

The BAPG, in conjunction with the United States Department of State and the American Embassy London, is to send a group of Parliamentarians to the United States in July 2024.

The purpose of the trip is to acquaint BAPG members with the American political system at the federal, state, and local levels, with emphasis on the role and organization of Congress.  It will include a short time with a Member of Congress in their district.

A delegation has been confirmed for this year’s exchange.

2024 US National Party Conventions

The British-American Parliamentary Group is working with the British Embassy in Washington DC and Conservative Party Head Quarters to confirm two invitations to each of the US National Party Conventions this year:

Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 15-18 July 2024 and the Democratic National Convention in Chicago, Illinois, 19-22 August 2024

We plan to send two Conservative Party members to the Republican convention and two members of the Opposition parties to the Democratic convention this year. Both parties run programmes for international visitors to observe the convention proceedings and take part in a series of panel sessions and events.

The BAPG officers have selected members for each convention.
