LNC Seeks Applicants for Platform, Bylaws, Credentials Committees

The Libertarian National Committee (LNC) is seeking applicants to serve on the Platform Committee, the Bylaws and Rules Committee, and the Credentials Committee for the May 27-30, 2016 national convention in Orlando, Florida.  The LNC expects to make the appointments during its March 28-29, 2015 meeting so as to give the committees plenty of time to complete their tasks before the convention.

The LNC appoints all 10 of the Bylaws and Rules Committee members, 5 of the 20 Platform Committee members, and 5 of the 10 Credentials Committee members.

The Platform Committee and also the Bylaws and Rules Committee typically have in-person meetings at least once, several months in advance of the national convention, and then a final meeting on the day before the national convention.  The Credentials Committee members gather and verify delegate data in the months leading up to the national convention, and then are expected to work onsite throughout the national convention.

Committee members will be expected to invest an appreciable amount of their time into doing their jobs.  Any travel costs incurred will be at personal expense.

If you are willing to serve in any of these LNC-appointed positions, apply by email to secretary@lp.org no later than March 21, 2015 (deadline mentioned in LP News of March 14 has been extended).  So that members of the LNC can determine who might best fill seats on the Platform Committee or Bylaws and Rules Committee, those applicants are requested to draft and submit sample platform/bylaw proposals with their applications.
