The Wisconsin Green Party’s Fall Gathering will be hosted by the Greater Milwaukee Greens on Saturday October 12 at St. Francis Church Community Room in the Capuchin Monastery, 1927 Vel R. Phillips Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53212.
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: https://www.wisconsingreenparty.org/contribute.
This is an especially important membership meeting, as we are already looking forward to Spring and Fall 2020 elections and other opportunities to make change, both inside and outside the political system.
All members will have the opportunity to participate in decisions affecting our party and discussions aimed at growing the Wisconsin Green Party 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 be electing officers, members of the coordinating council, delegates to the national party, caucus members (diversity, LGBTQIA, women’s, youth), as well as looking for more active members to serve on our committees (membership, communications, elections, finance, platform, and IT).
Open officer positions include co-chair, elections treasurer, operations treasurer, recording secretary, and corresponding secretary. We will be electing coordinating council representatives: 1 from each congressional district, 1 from each accredited local chapter, 1 from each caucus, and up to 8 at large; as well as 3 national committee delegates and up to 3 alternate delegates.
If you are interested in any of these roles, click here to submit a self-nomination. Please include the position you seek and why you think you would be a good fit.
For members elected to the coordinating council, we are planning to hold a coordinating council meeting and strategy session on Sunday October 13 at the same venue from 10am to 3pm. If you plan to run for coordinating council, please plan to be there!
