    The LGBT. caucus is in need of persons who will work to update the Wisconsin platform which I think needs to be done. I have been actively involved with the Greens for over 3o years on all levels and on the email list with the National Lavender Green Party caucus. I am the contact person for the CC. 8th. congressional district and I will continue in that position if it remains unfilled at the Convention. Now is the time to politically reach out to the LGBT. Queer community by showing our support to them we can increase the Green Party membership. I have been doing that in the Green Bay area where i live by working on issues such as Marriage Equality, so please help me to show our Gay Pride by nominating me to the the WI. Lavender Greens caucus. Go Green!! Jim,PeaceOWL…

    WIGP officer self-nomination

    Open positions to be elected at the 2020 Fall Gathering:

    1 Co-Chair (2 year term, must have been a Green Party member in good standing for at least 1 year prior)

    Recording Secretary (1 year term)

    Correspondence Secretary (1 year term)

    Operations Treasurer (1 year term)

    Elections Treasurer (1 year term)

    2 National Committee Representatives (1 year term)

    2 National Committee Alternates (1 year term)

     

    Coordinating Council Representatives (1 year terms):

    The coordinating council meets once per month (usually by conference call/virtually) to make decisions about Green Party activities between our semi-annual membership meetings.  These representatives are often very active in the committees which handle decisions about elections, candidates, events, membership drives, building locals/caucuses/or districts, newsletters, media presence, Green Party materials, the platform, and more.

    Besides the 2 Co-Chairs, secretaries, and treasurers, members are elected from a variety of districts, locals, caucuses, and general at-large members for coordinating council representation:

    -8 Congressional District Representatives: Each congressional district is to elect one representative 

    -The Greater Milwaukee Green Party elects one representative

    -The Four Lakes Green Party elects one representative

    -8 At-large members from any district/local/or group are elected by the general membership

    No person can be elected for 2 seats or have more than 1 vote on the coordinating council.  For example, the Greater Milwaukee representative cannot be the same person as one of the 8 at-large or the district representation.  None of the officers (co-chairs, secretaries, or treasurers) can run for these positions because they are already on the coordinating council as officers.  National Committee representatives may run for these seats.

     

    Please identify the position(s) you are running for, and describe your experience with activism and/or the Green Party, as well as why you think you would be a good fit for this position in the box below.

    See our Officers and Committees page for descriptions of the roles and responsibilities of Officers and Coordinating Council Members.

    Thanks for your interest in building the Wisconsin Green Party!
