Libertarians from across Michigan will assemble for their 2019 convention on Saturday, April  13th .  We will be gathering at the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel, 2 East Main Street, Bay City, Michigan. Many details have yet to be worked out, but please plan to attend this important event.

Convention Business Session – Free to LPM Members

The convention business session for elected delegates and alternates will feature proposed amendments to our Bylaws, reports from current state party officers, the election of state party officers for a two-year term, and caucuses to select congressional district representatives to the state executive committee for two-year terms.  You must be selected as a state convention delegate or alternate by a local affiliate or unaffiliated regional caucus in order to vote at the convention.  Each affiliate sets the date of its caucus to select delegates, so check with your local affiliate.  You must also have joined the Libertarian Party of Michigan (LPM) as a dues-paying member at least 30 days prior to the convention in order to serve as a state convention delegate or alternate.

Annual LibertyFest Banquet

The LPM’s annual LibertyFest banquet will follow the convention business session.  At the banquet, we will present Defender of Liberty awards to our:

  • Spokesperson for Liberty – A member of the community whose patriotism and conviction have inspired contributions to the cause of Liberty.
  • Promoter of Liberty – A Libertarian whose efforts have done the most to promote the LP and Libertarian principles.
  • Producer of Liberty – A dedicated, behind-the-scenes Libertarian whose quiet labors over the years exemplifies the backbone of the LP.

If you have any nominations for the Libby Awards please email them to chair@michiganlp.org with the subject line “Libby Award Nomination 2018”, and they will be forwarded to the Libby Awards Committee, once that committee is appointed.
