Please visit https://mainegreens.org/component/content/article/79-organization/219-2022-convention for complete information. The Facebook event is located at https://fb.me/e/2zRyD9reK.
IMPORTANT NOTE: We previously publicized a "Save the Date" with a weekend-long convention. ALL business will be done Saturday, June 4. There will be NO convention proceedings on Sunday.
Speakers on the 4th:
- Pat LaMarche
- Lisa Savage
- Meg Osgood
Our business will be done on Saturday, June 4, 10:30 AM to 4:30 PM. The day before, Friday, June 3 from 6 PM to 8 PM, we have time for Green Independents to socialize in an informal setting.
Both events must be registered for separately. Only enrolled Maine Green Independents and our invited speakers may register for convention events.
Our two events are titled differently. Register for both events if you wish to attend both. If you only wish to attend one, please make sure you register for the correct event.
WHEN REGISTERING FOR CONVENTION: Please use your legal name and address where you are registered to vote!
Friday Night Pre-Party Social: Friday, June 3 -- 6 PM to 8 PM
Maine Green Independent Party 2022 Annual Convention (Business Day): Saturday, June 4 -- 10:30 AM to 4:30 PM
Because our convention is only open to participation by enrolled Maine Green Independents, there may be a delay in processing registrations while we confirm each registrant's enrollment status. Last minute registrations may be denied if we are unable to confirm enrollment status with the voter lists available to us. We encourage members to register immediately, even if they are still uncertain whether they can attend.
Schedule for the 4th:
