The Wisconsin Green Party 2021 Fall Gathering state membership meeting will be held on Saturday November 13, 2021. The theme of the gathering will be "Facing the Climate Crisis" and we're excited to welcome special guest speaker Dr. Jill Stein, pioneering environmental health advocate and 2-time Green Party presidential nominee.
The Fall Gathering is the deadline to self-nominate for officer positions, and will offer space for candidates to make their case to their fellow members. After nominations are finalized, ballots will be sent to all dues-paying WIGP members in good standing. Officer positions up for election include one Co-Chair position, Operations Treasurer, Elections Treasurer, Recording Secretary, and Corresponding Secretary, as well as Coordinating Council positions for each Congressional District and up to 8 At-Large seats. More information about these positions and their responsibilities is available on our Officers and Committees page.
Due to the ongoing pandemic this gathering will be held virtually via Zoom. Members will be sent information about how to join the gathering online after they RSVP on this webpage.
This gathering will serve as the WIGP's biannual state membership meeting. All dues-paying WIGP members in good standing will be eligible to participate in decision-making and voting.
