2018 Maine Independent Green Party Convention – May 20
The Maine Green Independent Party will hold it's 2018 Annual Convention on Sunday, May 20th. The convention will take place at the Viles Arboretum in Augusta.
We will be presenting our wonderful Maine Green Party candidates for you to hear and meet and learn how you can help with their campaigns and perhaps run in the future yourselves. This year you can vote on Party Bylaws and Platform.
We will also have the 2012 VP Green Party candidate Cheri Honkala speak via Skype.
The state committee will have openings and will be accepting nominations for a 2-year co-chair, a 1-year co-chair, treasurer and members at large. As well, national and international representatives will be elected.
We will also be electing county and district committees and voting on party bylaws, goals and our platform. Please contact us if you are interested in any of these positions.
There will be available tables for art, books or info you would like to share. We will be sharing a potluck lunch so bring your favorite dish! Remember to come early before 9:00 AM to walk or bike the trails! (See trail map at top).
To RSVP, please call 207-284-3358
We look forward to seeing you!
