Save the Date, please, and let us know you’d like to attend [info@kygreenparty.org]!

The KYGP SC (Kentucky Green Party Steering Committee) is organizing the 2021/22 Statewide Convention for KYGP Members. Due to various reasons, this will be a virtual event only, without an in-person meeting place (as we have done before in Lexington and Louisville). Per our Bylaws, we were supposed to have this Statewide Convention in 2021, but were not successful in holding it during the previous calendar year. The Steering Committee members have now re-scheduled the 2021 Statewide Convention for February 27th, 2022, between 3pm – 4:30pm ET (2pm – 3:30pm CT).

Please register by sending us a short email to info@kygreenparty.org that you are interested in attending and we will send out meeting invites as soon as possible.

Agenda items for Statewide Convention:

  1. SC Vote – Kentucky Green Party members need to nominate, select, and vote on Steering Committee members and confirm them.
  2. Co-Chair Vote – Kentucky Green Party members need to vote on a Co-Chair for a two year term. David has been Co-Chair since 2019 and his two-year term is ending. He may choose to run (be nominated) again, but KYGP members will need to vote to confirm.
  3. NC Delegate Vote – The SC needs to nominate and vote on a NC Delegate to replace E.. Currently, David and E. are listed as NC delegates, Nathaniel and Ben are NC alternate delegates to the National Committee. E. signaled earlier in 2021 that she needs to step away and we need to fill this position.

Additional agenda items, as time permits:

  • Bylaws addition/change – consider change to Bylaws section 6.4, pertaining to meeting frequency for Steering Committee: Holding “quarterly meetings” has been a challenge in the last two years; as such, we may need to adapt this to “annual meetings” (or any lesser frequency), for as long as pandemic life continues… To be discussed and voted on by SC members.
  • Election Year 2022 – overview of what KY electorate will vote on, what potential candidates need to do, how we can build up candidates, what support KYGP can provide and what national GP can do.
  • 2022 Plans for KYGP – what can we, the KY Green Party, plan for and realistically accomplish this year.
  • Party program – develop plan to write up formal platform that can be used by candidates, sent out to party members, published etc.
  • Additional items TBD.

Backup date: Since participation was extremely light for the previously scheduled Statewide Convention on 01/29/2022, we decided to postpone to the backup date is and change from Saturday to now Sunday, February, 27th 2022.

See you there, virtually, Peace! Ben P.
