Platform Committee Application

The Libertarian National Committee (LNC) is seeking applicants to serve on the Platform Committee for the May 21-25, 2020 national convention in Austin, Texas. The LNC expects to make these appointments at its November meeting.

The LNC appoints 5 out of the 20 Platform Committee members as well as ranked alternates. The remaining fifteen seats are filled by the states with the most bylaws-sustaining national memberships (10 by raw numbers, and 5 by per capita). The committee proposes changes to the party’s platform and convention delegates vote on whether to approve those proposals.

This committee typically has 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. In the interim, there is likely to be a large volume of email discussions and several electronic meetings.

Committee members will be expected to invest an appreciable amount of their time into doing their jobs including a high tolerance for heavy email traffic . Any travel costs incurred will be at personal expense.

If you are interested in serving in one of these LNC-appointed seats, apply by completing this webform no later than October 15, 2019.

*Please note that these applications (excluding street address and phone number) will be publicly viewable. Please do not include any information that would be considered private.
