The Libertarian National Committee (LNC) is seeking applicants to serve on the Platform Committee and on the Bylaws and Rules Committee for the July 1-3, 2018 national convention in New Orleans, Louisiana. The LNC expects to make the appointments during its April 15-16, 2017 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, and 5 of the 20 Platform Committee members. The committees propose changes to the party’s bylaws/rules or platform, respectively, and convention delegates vote on whether to approve those proposals.
Both committees 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 begins.
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.
It is often helpful when applicants draft and submit sample platform/bylaw proposals with their applications.
If you are willing to serve in these LNC-appointed positions, apply by completing this webform no later than April 5, 2017.
