The Libertarian Executive Committee (LEC) selected the members of the 2021 Convention and Platform Committees at its January 10th business meeting.  However, they decided to hold off on naming a Bylaws Committee until its February 21st meeting and are still seeking applications.

Convention and Platform Committees

The 2021 Convention Committee will be chaired by Andrew Chadderdon of Wayne County. Chadderdon was involved with both of our 2020 state conventions by managing our polling application and helped run convention business.  The other members of the committee include; Jamie Lewis, Connor Nepomuceno, Ryan Roberts, Dan Ziemba, Ben Boren, and Dana Carver.

The convention will likely be held in May with a date and location currently being negotiated. Questions, comments, and suggestions about the 2021 LPM State Convention can be directed to Andrew Chadderdon at andrew.chadderdon@gmail.com.

The 2021 Platform Committee will be chaired by James Weeks of Livingston County.  Weeks, who is currently Webmaster and Chair of Livingston, previously chaired the Platform Committee in 2019.  The other members of the committee include; Aaron Miranov, Brandon Warzybok, Jeff Wood, Jessica Sentman, Robert Roddis, Dave Canny, Scotty Boman, and Mike Saliba.  Also, the Platform Committee report will be presented to delegates at the upcoming state convention. Suggested changes to the LPM platform can be sent to James Weeks at jamestweeks@outlook.com.

Bylaws Committee Not Filled

The 2021 Bylaws Committee will also present its report at the upcoming state convention but has not been named. So if you are interested in serving on bylaws, please send a brief statement, as to why the LEC should select you to be on the committee, to both LPM Chair Greg Stempfle, chair@michiganlp.org, and LPM Secretary Mary Buzuma, secretary@michiganlp.org by February 19th.

The LEC will meet via zoom videoconference on February 21st at noon to select Bylaws Committee members, among other items of business. All party members, especially those interested in serving on of the committees, are welcome to join! There is a link to the zoom meeting in the calendar of events in this newsletter and on our website, and Facebook page.
