CIB is a fully independent organisation which is not owned or controlled by any one individual. We are 100% owned and run by our membership. We are cross-party and non-sectarian. Our sole aim is UK withdrawal from the EU: we have no other political or policy goals.
Our committee is elected every 12 months, and any member is entitled to stand for election after three months of membership. Want to get involved in the running of CIB? We actively encourage new members to stand for committee once eligible, to bring fresh energy and ideas to our campaign.
CIB is the UK’s longest-running anti-EU campaign group, having been founded in 1969. By joining CIB, you will be part of an organisation with a proud history of fighting for British sovereignty for the past fifty years, treading in the footsteps as such eminent CIB members as Sir Peter Shore, whose famous speech to the Oxford Union before the 1975 referendum remains just as powerful today, and Sir Richard Body, one of the heroic ‘Maastricht rebels’, who famously resigned the Conservative whip in solidarity with eight fellow Tory MPs who had had the whip suspended by John Major.
Membership of CIB is deliberately priced to be affordable to all whilst enabling us to cover our running costs. Annual membership costs just £20, and only £10 for under 25s and over 65s. We’re sure you’ll agree that this is a small price to pay for our sovereignty. It is thanks to the mass support of thousands of ordinary people like you over the past fifty years that we have managed to get to where we are now, so please help us continue to fight for our sovereignty.
Feeling powerless in the fight to get the Brexit we voted for? Join us and play your part! There any many different ways you can help in the running of CIB, such as social media, admin, joining the committee or helping out at events.
