Join a Committee!

Are you looking for a way to get involved (or deepen your involvement) with the Libertarian Party of NC? Want to help the Party grow, or get a better understanding of Libertarian Party principles, policies, and procedures? Committee participation is a great way to accomplish all these things - and as a fantastic side benefit, you will develop lasting and strong relationships with like-minded Libertarian friends.

To serve on an LPNC committee, you should be a Party member. No other particular expertise is needed, and you may serve on more than one committee at a time. Currently we have openings for the following committees. Please contact Susan Hogarth at chair@lpnc.org or 919-906-2106 if you would like to be considered for one or more of these groups, or if you have any questions.
Platform Committee
The LPNC Platform is the Party's official stance on issues of interest to North Carolinians. It is a resource for candidates, media, and local parties. Every other year, the LPNC undertakes a review and revision of its Platform at our annual convention. In the months leading up to the convention, the Platform Committee meets regularly to solicit, review, and craft a set of proposals to modify the platform that will be reviewed and voted upon by the full convention. To be on this committee, you should have an interest in shaping the voice of the LPNC, as well as some basic familiarity with NC issues and Libertarian principles. The time commitment varies, but should be no more than 1-2 hours per week even at the peak of activity for most committee members.

Convention Committee
The Convention Committee plans and executes our State Convention. Early tasks include identifying a venue, preparing vendor contracts, preparing for and tracking sales, recruiting speakers, setting up workshops, planning A/V, etc. As the spring approaches this becomes a very busy committee whose work culminates with the Convention in Greensboro in April. This is a great committee to exercise or develop your talent for event planning.

Strategic Planning Committee
This is the committee responsible for the oversight and continued development of the LPNC Strategic Plan. Members help track progress towards the goals we have set, and help tweak those goals as needed.

Policy and Procedure Manual Committee
We are working to develop a clear P&P manual to help in regular party governance as well as to make the transition between administrations smoother.

Messaging and Issues Committee
The LPNC Messaging Committee (MC) has been formed to assist the LPNC and Affiliates to help create external-facing policy and position statements that are consistent with the LPNC bylaws and platform and that help to connect subject matter experts with affiliates for guest speakers and events. The goal for the MC is to provide professional, well thought out and organized dissemination of Libertarian Party principles to help candidates and party growth. We are always looking for authors with writing talent and libertarian ideas. In addition we want to develop a speakers bureau and a list of subject matter experts.

Primaries Study Committee
At the last LPNC Convention, we agreed to leave our (state-mandated) primaries open to unaffiliated voters, should they choose to ask for our ballot. The Convention asked that we form a committee to study this matter further, to see if semi-open (the current state) or closed (registered Libertarian only) primaries would serve us better.

Code of Conduct Committee
This will be a short-term committee to draft a code of conduct for Party officers, members, and volunteers. It will be presented to the Executive Committee for final approval. The work should take no more than a month.other year, the LPNC undertakes a review and revision of its Platform at our annual convention.
