The first Alba party conference will be taking place September 18th and 19th 2021 on the 7th Anniversary of the Scottish Independence referendum. Rather than having a system of delegates or elected representatives casting the votes or making decisions it will be a one member = one vote process. This will also make things much more interesting and democratic when electing the party leader and other roles at the top. It brings back the sense of a grass roots and member lead party that the SNP once was.
Kenny MacAskill MP and Neale Hanvey MP have outlined their strategy going forward as Alba party members in Westminster. There will be plenty of time for Alba to build up their profile and grow as a party between now and the next Scottish Parliament elections. More pro independence parties at Hollyrood can only cement the cause for Scottish home rule. The more range of views on other policies can only be a good thing when it comes to debating the merits of new bills and holding those in power to account.
