The Wisconsin Green Party will hold our 2018 Spring Gathering statewide membership meeting in Stevens Point on Saturday, April 14th. We encourage all Greens to attend and make your voice heard on important decisions for our party, including candidate endorsements in 2018 elections.
With elections for state legislature, Congress, Governor and other state constitutional offices coming up this November, the Spring Gathering is the time when Wisconsin Greens can weigh in on endorsement decisions in these important races.
We also have other critical decisions to make, including a major revision of our party’s bylaws, and a major update of our platform.
Check this page for additions to the agenda and other updates. Everyone is welcome to attend. To participate in decision-making, you should be a dues-paying member in good standing of the WI Green Party - check www.wigp.org/join for more information.
At the heart of Central Wisconsin Greens territory, Stevens Point is an excellent location for Greens from every corner of the state to meet. Saturday’s membership meeting will be hosted at the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point by the UW-SP College Greens.
On Sunday April 15th, members of the state Coordinating Council will meet at a venue to be determined in Stevens Point.
See you in beautiful Stevens Point on April 14th!WHENApril 14, 2018 at 10amWHEREUniversity of Wisconsin - Stevens Point
The Wisconsin Green Party is hosting a one-day Green Campaign Training School on Saturday April 7th in Milwaukee for anyone who is interested in running for office as a Green or working on a Green campaign. We highly encourage people who are planning to run for office (or considering a campaign) to attend together with their prospective campaign managers and other key team members. The campaign school is also open to anyone who wants to support Green campaigns and would like to gain the skills and knowledge needed to be an essential part of a campaign team.
The curriculum of this intensive day-long training will include:
- how to plan for a winning campaign
- developing a campaign strategy
- assembling a campaign team
- the roles of the candidate and campaign manager
- defining a message
- getting the message out
- budgeting and fundraising
- technology and social media
The Green Party seeks to empower regular people to run for office and break down the barriers that prevent people from taking part in politics, government, and the decisions that affect our daily lives. To that end, this campaign school will be free and open to the public. Greens from outside Wisconsin are welcome as well. Although participation does not necessarily imply Green Party support, information will be provided to participants about the process for seeking Green endorsement.
The Green Campaign Training School will be held on Saturday April 7th from 12 noon to 8 pm at the First Unitarian Society at 1342 N Astor Street, Milwaukee. The event will be livestreamed and recorded. For maximum benefit, we recommend that prospective candidates and their team members attend in person. Attendees should register as soon as possible so that organizers have ample time to make arrangements and send important information. Refreshments, coffee and tea, and a late lunch will be provided on-site (with a $5 donation requested to cover food costs).
Contact WIGP co-chair Dave Schwab at email@example.com if you have any questions. Mark your calendar and don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to lead the way to a better world!
We need volunteers at the Campaign Training School to help with simple tasks like serving food and cleaning up - if you can help out, please check the box to volunteer when you RSVP.WHENApril 07, 2018 at 12pmWHEREFirst Unitarian Society

“Up to two members are from each of the eight congressional districts. Each member serves a 2-year term… These 8 (16 in first year) members will be nominated in their district meetings at the Fall Gathering. The election will take place at the full membership meeting.”
