WI Green Party Fall Gathering 2017

UPDATED: See draft agenda and schedule below:

The Wisconsin Green Party’s Fall Gathering will be hosted by the Waukesha Greens on Saturday November 11th. This is an especially important membership meeting, as we are coming up on local, state and federal elections. All members will have the opportunity to participate in decisions affecting our party and discussions aimed at growing the WI Greens into the transformational political force that we need.

We’ll be making plans to work on important issues, grow our membership, recruit candidates, and build dynamic and effective local chapters. We’ll consider changes to our state party constitution including a proposal to increase representation of local chapters in the state coordinating council.

We’ll be electing officers, members of the coordinating council and delegates to the national party, as well as members of our caucuses (diversity, LGBTQIA, women’s, youth). We're also looking for more active members to serve on our committees (membership, communications, elections, finance, platform, IT). If you are interested in any of these roles, make sure to submit a self-nomination

For members elected to the coordinating council, we are planning to hold a strategy session on Sunday November 12th at the same venue from 10am - 5pm.

All are welcome. If you would like to participate in decision-making, you should be a dues-paying member of the WIGP in good standing. Click here for information on how to become a member or renew your membership.

If you need a ride to the event, if you can offer a ride to others, if you are looking for accommodations for Friday or Saturday night, or if you can provide accommodations, please email Tiffany Anderson at [email protected] with details including your location, contact info and space needed/available.
