ILGP Coordinating Committee

The Illinois Green Party Coordinating Committee serves as the chief decision-making body of the Illinois Green Party between Membership Meetings.  Meeting monthly, on the third Sunday of every month at 7:30 PM, the primary function of the Coordinating Committee is for Coordinators and other members to regularly interface with one another and the state party for the purposes of coordination of activities.  The Coordinating Committee is also responsible for functions including but not limited to hiring, party promotion, issuance of party position statements consistent with the 10 Key Values and party platform, membership recruitment, candidate recruitment at the statewide level, candidate assistance, and ensuring that Membership Meetings are organized, scheduled and promoted.

ILGP Coordinating Committee Observers

On February 23, 2014, the Executive Committee approved the following policy on CC Observer Status:

“Any ILGP member who has signed up on the Focus list OR has verified attendance (by a chapter officer) at a chapter meeting may be granted observer status on the CC. The Executive Committee may invite the member to participate as an observer, either on its own, or at the request of a chapter officer.  The CC observer does not have voting privileges on the CC. The observer can take part in discussions, and make proposals on the CC.  The purpose of this proposal is to give incentive to new people, and to take advantage of new ideas, without the pitfalls of a “green” Green.”

Executive Committee

The ILGP Executive Committee is elected annually at the ILGP Spring Convention and are automatically made Coordinating Committee members.
