2020 ILGP Spring Convention
The ILGP 2020 Spring Convention and membership meeting will take place on Saturday, February 29, 2020 at the Third Unitarian Church, 301 N. Mayfield, Chicago, Illinois.
We should have a pretty full agenda, as we discuss petition planning and strategizing for campaign 2020, election of officers, amendments to our by-laws, possible selection of a U.S. Senate candidate, selection process for our presidential ticket – and more. We expect to cap things off late afternoon/early evening with a forum for recognized Green Party presidential candidates, and an evening social and dinner. Please mark your calendars now, and plan on joining us that day.
Remember: You have to be a dues-paying member of the party to participate in decision-making, so if you have not yet joined, this would be a good time to take care of that task.
