This gathering will serve as the WIGP's state membership meeting as well as our Presidential nominating convention. All dues-paying WIGP members in good standing will be eligible to participate in decision-making and voting, including in our ranked-choice vote for the 2020 Presidential nominee of Green Party US.
You can become a dues-paying member of the WIGP or renew your membership here.
