GREEN PARTY OF VIRGINIA
STATE PARTY MEETING AGENDA
Sunday, October 25th, 2020, 1pm
The focus of this business meeting is the November election, particularly supporting our write-in candidate for president, organizing for passing out literature at polling places, and so on. We will also consider our strategic plans for the future, and how to increase public awareness of our party and platform.
(For purposes of calculating quorum, currently active locals represented at at least one of the previous two scheduled business meetings were Arlington, Blue Ridge, Fairfax, Hampton Roads, Lynchburg, New River Valley, and Shenandoah Valley.)
LOCATION: Teleconference. Details for how to join the conference on the internet or by telephone will be published to the GPVA list-serves in the days prior to the meeting.
EXPECTED DURATION: 2 hours
INTRODUCTION (10 min)
Choose facilitator, timekeeper, vibes watcher. (Note for our new members: Anyone can take on any one of these roles for a business meeting. If you would like to volunteer to take one of these roles you are free to do so, or someone may nominate you to do so. In the event two or more people are interested in serving in the same role, a co-chair will poll the members present regarding their preference. Facilitators should be familiar with both consensus practice and parliamentary norms, and possessed of both patience and self-confidence.)
