2018 State Assembly for Maryland Greens – June 30
Join us for the Maryland Green Party's annual State Assembly on June 30th. Our 2018 host is the Howard County Green Party, holding the assembly in Elkridge, Maryland. The event will take place from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm at the Elkridge Library.
We will have a selection of speakers, most notably former Co-chair Ian Schlakman and HUD RAB delegate Rev. Annie Chambers, who are running for Governor and Lt. Governor respectively. There will also be group discussions, panels, and workshops.
The complete Assembly Itinerary will be published shortly.
Most importantly, we will be electing officers to the Coordinating Council (the State Party's Green Central Committee). These officer positions include two co-chairs, a treasurer, a secretary, and a membership coordinator. In addition, we will be electing delegates to represent Maryland Greens on the Green National Committee (GNC). There are two delegate and two alternate delegate positions.

You must be registered Green in the State of Maryland and have one other registered Green sponsor you declared nomination. Anyone who declares their nomination after the deadline will be a write-in candidate. In addition, the party is accepting amendments to the party's Constitution and Bylaws, also to be submitted by May 30. See 2018 Assembly Voting Procedure.
