Executive Committee Elections
The convention will elect the entire LPNC Executive Committee. All officers, chair, vice chair, secretary, and treasurer, as well as nine at-large positions, are up for election. The term is two years.
The executive committee is responsible for the control and management of all of the affairs, properties, and funds of the party between conventions. The EC meets about every 5-6 weeks. We alternate having online (Google Hangouts) and in-person meetings. We also conduct business in a Yahoo Group.
If you think you have the time and energy to devote to leading the LPNC in the coming years and are interested in serving, please contact State Chair Brian Irving or one of the exec comm members.
If you have questions, or what to help with convention organizing, contact James Hines, Convention Committee chair.
