Rule Change #1
— SUCCESS! —
The rules were amended on July 25, 2017 to make it easier for State Committee members to participate in meetings.
The Problem: Members typically didn’t hear about meetings until 10 days before they happened, making it difficult to plan affordable travel and get time off work. Plus, members can only add items to the agenda if submitted 15 days before the meeting—impossible if the meeting wasn’t even announced until 10 days prior!
The Solution: At least 25 days before a meeting, the Secretary will post the meeting date and location on the party website and send an email with the same information to members. The official written meeting notice may still go out as late as 10 days prior to the meeting, and it will include an itemized agenda for members to review so they can engage in discussion and cast thoughtful votes.
