ATTENTION ALL REGISTERED GREENS IN FLORIDA!!!
These are the offices that will be up for election for the GPFL. They are all for one year terms, except where otherwise noted. Registered Greens can self-nominate or nominate other Greens to any position. All nominations must be seconded by another Green. Elections will be held at the Peace House on Sunday, May 28th. Time 10 am – 3 PM. Location details are on our website. Nominations can be made here or via the GPFL Coordinating council or at the state meeting.
For officer positions: Current or past members of state coordinating council recommended but not mandatory.
For national delegates: Current or past delegates, or observers, highly recommended.
Also recommended that members limit themselves to no more than 3 offices or national committees as not to spread themselves too thin.
The goal is to do all that you can to help grow and strengthen our party of common sense and good conscience in the state of Florida and/or nation-wide thereby giving us increased relevance and more elected Greens.
