2019 LP Michigan State Convention

2019 LP Michigan State Convention

Event Details

Libertarians from across Michigan will assemble for their 2019 convention on Saturday, April  13.  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 Bylaws consideration, 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 as a dues-paying member at least 30 days prior to the convention in order to serve as a state convention delegate or alternate.

Presidential Candidate Forum

The convention will feature a buffet lunch at which announced candidates for the 2020 Libertarian Party nomination for President will speak.  So far 3 candidates have committed to attend.

LibertyFest Banquet

The LPM’s annual LibertyFest banquet will follow the convention business session. This year’s guest speaker is Caleb Dyer, former Libertarian State Representative from New Hampshire. At the banquet, we will present Defender of Liberty awards to our 2018 Spokesperson for Liberty, Promoter of Liberty and Producer of Liberty.
