Get Involved - ILGP Committees

Committees are task groups of Green Party members who work together to produce specific results. Each committee operates under its own Committee Rules Document.

Committees typically focus on both discrete goals (produce a needed press release, put a specific proposal before the Executive Committee, organize an event, etc.) and ongoing agenda planning (maintain up-to-date information on upcoming electoral races, draft yearly fundraising frameworks, etc.).

Each ILGP committee has an associated Yahoo group that serves as the basic "discussion board" for the committee. Individual committees may have other meeting times, communications tools, etc. listed in their Rules Document. 

Members of state parties may also, with the Executive Committee's approval, be appointed as a representative to a national Green Party committee. Typically, each state is entitled to three members on each national committee. For more information, see the Green Party US Committees website.
