Sincere Thanks to our Webmaster for Restoring Party's Online Presence

The Georgia Green Party is indebted to a committed Green volunteer, Dan Everett of Athens, for maintaining and recently restoring this website. Due to technical difficulties, the site was offline for several weeks this year. The Party sincerely thanks Dan for his expertise in rebuilding the site from archived files.

For anyone who doesn't know Dan, he is a professor of Computer Science in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Georgia. His work with the Party over many years has included serving as faculty advisor for the Campus Greens at UGA and also helping to found and organize the Athens/Clarke County Green Party.

Please take a moment to notice that our published website ( is actually a pointer to the web-location that you currently see in the address-bar of your web browser. The site "" is owned by the Athens/Clarke County Green Party. That's right! The Georgia Green Party website is currently hosted by one of its county affiliates. There's nothing particluarly "wrong" or technically-limiting by this arrangement, and as noted, the Party is grateful to Dan for hosting the Georgia Party website for these many years. However, if so directed by the 2009 convention of the state Party and/or the incoming state committee (coordinating council), the Party can rebuild and/or redesign this website at an address registered directly to the state Party.

  • In order to create its own "independent" website, required resources will include donated funding and volunteer expertise.
  • If this project interests you, please consider attending the 2009 annual convention and/or send email to

Interested website volunteers have a fine example (and a tough act to follow) in Dan Everett. Thanks, Dan!

The Georgia Green Party Annual Convention will take place on Saturday, September 19, 2009, between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at the Spring4th Center, 728 Spring Street, Atlanta, GA 30308. All interested Party members and Georgians are encouraged to attend. Party business at this convention will include strategic assessment and planning as well as the election of state Party leadership and consideration of proposed changes to the Platform and Bylaws. At this time, the Party does not currently anticipate considering at this meeting the nomination of any candidates to public office in 2009 elections. Additional information will be posted here about: parking and directions, the meeting agenda, and keynote speaker. Important - click either the headline above this article or the "Read More" link below, to visit a page with more details!

This Annual Convention will begin by assembling attendees into "caucuses" by county of residence. The Convention organizers will be onsite around 9:00 a.m., and attendees are encouraged to arrive before 10:00 a.m., so that county caucuses can meet promptly. Each county caucus will meet briefly and select its voting delegates to the convention, from among those persons present. All delegates will be documented (or "credentialed"), and then the Convention will be called to order and will evaluate the organizers' proposed agenda for the day.

Elections will include the state committee (called the coordinating council) for the 2009-2011 term and to fill vacancies for the 2008-2010 term. Successful candidates for the coordinating council will begin terms immediately. Interested persons are encouraged both 1) to contact any of the officers listed on the "contacts" page of this website (see link, top left), and also 2) to read the Bylaws and the "Policy on Elected Servants of the Party" which are available in the "governing documents" section of this website (see link, top left).
