Maine Green Independent 2017 Convention is scheduled for May 21
SAVE THE DATE! The 2017 Maine Green Independent Party Annual Convention will be held on Sunday, May 21st at Viles Arboretum, 153 Hospital Street in Augusta.
Registration will begin at 9:00 AM and we will say farewell at 5:00 PM. A $20 registration fee is recommended, but no one will be turned away. We'll be sharing a potluck lunch, so please bring your favorite salads, appetizers or desserts!
This year in addition to regular Party business, we’re honored that Dr Jill Stein our 2012/2016 Presidential candidate and, from Maine Penobscot Tribe, Dawn Neptune Adams will be our speakers.
We’ll also vote on Party Bylaws. Changes must be submitted by April 21st.
The State Committee will have openings and we will be accepting nominations for both officers and members at large. We will also have nominations for National and International Representatives, to help keep Maine voices in the forefront of Green issues around the world.
We're looking for members for the newly formed Maine Green Women's Caucus. For more info on that, contact Jacqui vie email at [email protected]
