Message from Annual Meeting Co-Chairs
As co-chairs of your Annual National Committee Meeting, we have several announcements regarding the meeting in Durham, North Carolina, July 23-26.
We’re passing the savings on to you!
The Annual National Meeting Committee is working hard to make this a high-quality and low-cost meeting.  We have recently reviewed our budget and cut costs significantly.  In order to pass the savings on to you, we are extending the earlybird registration price of $130 through June 28.  After that date, registration will increase to $160 (was to be $190 for on-site).  Register now.
Reserve housing and meal plans by June 28 – absolute deadline!
It is very important to reserve your housing and meal plans NOW.
Housing must be reserved by Sunday, June 28.  North Carolina Central University (www.NCCU.edu) has been holding a block of rooms for us since February.  They now have two other groups waiting for rooms for other events at the same time as our meeting.  We must tell NCCU our final room count by this date.  After June 28, we will not be able to guarantee you dorm space on campus.  Note, if you need to register and pay for housing now but delay paying for your actual meeting registration until later, contact Brian Bittner at 202-319-7191.
Workshops!  Caucuses!  Committee Meetings!  National Committee Meeting!
We are thrilled to put out the following workshop options (all are subject to change until closer to the meeting).  All workshops will take place from 1:30 PM, Thursday, July 23 through 12:30 PM, Friday, July 24.  There will also be a number of workshops on Saturday and Sunday for non-delegates and local attendees. We’ll have four tracks for participants:  Issues, Campaign School, Skill-Building/Party-Building, and Committees and Caucuses.  The exact schedule is still being finalized – check the tentative schedule.  Thank you to all of the workshop presenters who have volunteered their time and talents.
Fun!
The Triangle Greens are planning a great event at the Marvel Event Center in the heart of Durham.  There will local food, a cash bar and entertainment.  Come and join your Green friends. Register for this event here.
You know you want to be there!  Register today.

June 2009 Greenline   🙂
Registration Still Open for Annual National Meeting
The 2009 Green Party Annual National Meeting will be held in Durham, North Carolina from July 23rd-26th.  Dorm-style accommodations and dining hall meals make this year’s meeting low-key, friendly, and affordable.  Workshops hosted by Green Party organizers from around the country will start at noon on Thursday, July 23rd and end at noon Sunday, July 26th.
2010 campaigns will kick off next month in Durham.  If you are planning to run for county, state, or federal office in 2010, you can learn all you need to kick your campaign off the ground in Durham next month.  We will hold workshops on reaching out to media, using social networks and web tools to spread the word about your campaign, setting up a door-to-door canvassing operation, networking with other Green Party candidates to share resources, and much more. 
Is your state working to win ballot access for 2010 and the 2012 Presidential election?  Come to Durham to learn the basics of a ballot access campaign and coordinating state-wide efforts.      
REGISTER NOW at the lowest possible price before it increases!  And forward this message to your e-mail lists so your state and local party will be represented at the 2009 Green Party Annual National Meeting.  A limited number of diversity waivers for the registration fee (housing, food and travel are NOT a part of the waiver) are available – for further information contact diversity09@gp.org.
  Greens Win in June 9th Elections
The Green Party had a very successful election day on June 9th, winning four of five races.  Three Greens ran for City of Portland (ME) Charter Commission.  Ben Chipman, running in District 1, won his race with 62% of the vote.  Anna Trevorrow, running for an at-large seat, won her seat with almost 13% of the vote amongst a field of eight candidates.  Dan Jenkins, running in District 2, came very close to winning with 45.5% of the vote.  Congratulations to two Green members of the City of Portland Charter Commission!
In Whately, Massachusetts, two Greens became (we believe) the first husband-and-wife team of Green officeholders.  Nate Fortune was re-relected to the Whately Elementary School Committee, and Joyce Palmer-Fortune won her race for Whately Select Board.  Congratulations to Nate and Joyce for helping turn Whately, MA Green!
Hundreds of Green candidates are still campaigning for fall 2009 elections.  To find candidates near you, check out our on-line elections database. 
There may still be time for you to declare a run for office this fall!  E-mail office@gp.org if you are interested in running for office and need help getting started.

Make a commitment to help monthly.
