The NUJ's policy, objectives and campaigning priorities are decided at the NUJ conference – the delegate meeting (DM).

NUJ DM is the union's main policy-making body. A member can volunteer to attend DM as a delegate and speak and vote on behalf of the members they are representing.
The NUJ is a democratic union: all members can influence policy. All members are entitled to attend branch meetings and branches can submit motions and amendments to conference.
Delegates can speak in debates, vote and ask questions. If a motion is passed, it becomes union policy. To prepare for DM every branch holds a special meeting to discuss arrangements for the conference.

The conference also scrutinises the union's accounts and reviews reports from each sector and body of the union.
Documents from previous conferences, including the reports to DM, are available on the DM documents page.
The 2012 DM agreed to hold the conference every two years after the 2014 conference.
