Registration, Check In, Delegation Reporters & more

This is a follow up to our email sent on last Friday There is a lot of information to transmit about our first-ever online Annual National Meeting and Presidential Nominating Convention (PNC) on Saturday, July 11th. We are doing are best to answer questions as they arise. 


Hearings will be held over Zoom prior to the PNC on July 11th so that any delegate who wishes to address the convention regarding the Platform can submit their request to speak by noon eastern on Thursday, July 9th. We will send out more information about that specific request process in our next update, later this week.

  • Sunday, July 5th from 7:00-8:30pm eastern 
  • Monday, July 6th from 7:00-8:30pm eastern


There will be several workshops on Thursday, July 9th and more workshops on Friday, July 10th. We have even scheduled an evening of FUNdraising on Friday with a night of LIVE comedy, right from your own home! You will NOT want to miss All-Star The Jimmy Dore Show contributor Ron Placone's EXCLUSIVE live set for the Green Party!

Those observers who wish to follow along our Zoom webinar and participate in our traditional Annual National Meeting workshops have until July 5th to register.


Our PNC schedule on Saturday, July 11th includes discussion and voting on items outlined in our bylaws such as our Credentialing Report, approval of our Platform, and of course our nomination process. Presidential candidates who have met the requirements to address the convention will be given equal time to do so. 


The "check in" process for Delegates the morning of the PNC is very simple: Delegates will receive an email that morning with a link to a page. Delegates will literally click the  mark in the box. That's it! We allocated an hour, and ask that Delegates don't wait until the last minute just in case anyone experiences a problem.

We have produced a short video so you can see the process. As Delegates check in, that will be visible to other delegates and convention administrators. This will allow Delegation Reporters to see who among their delegation may need a gentle nudge / reminder to get online for the day.

So please check in prior to our noon eastern start time. One of the first items on the agenda is the Credentialing Report, which does require a vote. There will also be a vote on our Platform, in addition to our vice presidential and presidential nominating process. We have built in a short break, but Delegates should be available to vote whenever necessary. 


Throughout the PNC, we will air several speeches from a range of inspiring and thought-provoking speakers including Ajamu Baraka, Robin Harris, Margaret Flowers, Cam Gordon, Seth Kaper-Dale, Margaret Kimberly, Jenny Leong, Mirna Martinez, Lisa Savage, Jill Stein. A Speaker's page will be posted online soon, with regular updates as we get even closer. 


The deadline for credentialed Delegates to register is July 1st. That gives us time to send information to Delegates about how they will vote using Loomio AND to hold mock elections to ensure delegates understand and can participate in the voting process. Delegates must register in order to receive that information.

Those observers who wish to follow along our Zoom webinar and participate in our traditional Annual National Meeting workshops have until July 5th to register. 

We will send invitations to our Zoom webinar in the final week, along with instructions and links to training videos. We will offer an "orientation" to those who feel they need extra help (likely Wednesday, July 8th). We will have two assistants on the day to provide extra help for those who need it. 


If you have any special needs, including the need for tech assistance, please complete this form by June 30th. Please give us time to research and respond. As mentioned in previous emails, we are providing ASL translators and live captioning during plenary sessions. 


We will continue to send more emails in the coming days. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
