The delegates conference dubbed: “Reflect, Rebuild and Recapture Power” was dedicated to the memory of the late Mr Peter Ala Adjetey, Former National Chairman of the Party and Former Speaker of Parliament.

Portions of Article Two on the aims and objectives of the Party; Three on membership; Four on disciplinary and grievance procedures; Five on structure and organizations; Six on constituency organization; Seven on regional organizations and Eight on overseas branches were amended.
