GPTX Update & State Meeting

GPTX State Executive Committee has selected June 6th & 7th as the dates for our annual statewide meeting this year, to be held in Tarrant County, near Fort Worth. The purpose of this meeting will be to discuss bylaws, platform, state and local needs/goals, coordination, and to vote for new officers. April 22nd has been set as the documentation deadline for county parties to deliver all materials to GPTX in preparation for the state meeting. This includes drafts of all bylaw and platform amendments, county delegate lists, updated county officer contact & affiliation info, and candidate applications. This year we will be electing a co-chair, secretary, at least three at-large SEC positions.

GPTX has undertaken a regional coordination initiative, coinciding with the implementation of GPTX on the Nationbuilder platform, intended to help grow and improve the party organization. With improved ability to utilize our member database, we are attempting to revitalize county parties and do a better job of facilitating volunteers and members. Now is a great time to help get your local GP active again! Keep in mind, we need county parties to have their documentation in for the state meeting by April 22nd, so you'll need to get started soon if you haven't already. Our hope is to have GPTX primed & ready going in to 2016.

And of course, we could really use some help with fundraising to cover basic organizational & operating costs. Your support is deeply appreciated! We don't accept corporate money, so we only have the interests of people in mind!

    I, MARIA ELENA CASTELLANOS, am going to the GPTX state convention June 6-7, 2015. I plan to stay there with a relative, if necessary. (I have resumed activities with the Harris County Green Party now that my home-nursing duties of an ill relative are easing up. After many weeks of pre-surgery and post-surgery illness, my daughter is now getting stronger.) I have discussed potential travel arrangements with one of the newly elected HCGP-Co-chairs. If necessary, I can take my own 15 yr-old Volvo and up to three passengers. U can reach me thru my email & cell: castellanoslaw1@gmail.com or 832-244-7506. Or contact me thru HCGP-CoChair, BERNADINE. Also, please contact me re a proposed change in the bylaws that I am preparing regarding more specific requirements and procedures that would compel member organizations to open leadership and delegate positions to under-represented groups, especially Black and Latino activists; and twenty-something young activists. MEC’s contact info: castellanoslaw1@gmail.com or 832-244-750. Posted by M.E.Castellanos on the gptx.nationbuilder.com/gptx_update#addreaction weblink on 4.14.15 at 5:04 pm CST.
