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).
