Illinois Green Party State Meeting This Weekend (July 16)
July 14, 2011 in State Party News
I have the pleasure of being able to attend the Illinois Green Party’s State Membership Meeting this weekend (July 15-16) in Rockford, Illinois.
At this meeting, elections will be held for Chair, Secretary, and Membership Steward of the Illinois Green Party, and for delegate seats on the Green National Committee.
Presentations from local anti-nuclear power activist Stan Campbell and Nuclear Energy Information Service Executive Director David Kraft will highlight the meeting.
There will be no admission charge for the meeting. Donation will be accepted for extras such as a continental breakfast.
Friday night, a social event will be held at the Sweden House Lodge in the Scandia Room from 8:00 until midnight. Please bring your own food and drink as there are no dining facilities that serve the room.
Saturday evening, a fundraising dinner will be held at the India House, 6430 E. Riverside Blvd. in Loves Park. We are planning to have a private room with buffet style dinner of four entrees, salad bar, soda and non-alcoholic drinks, dessert, bread, rice, and an appetizer. Suggested cost is $40 or $25 for those with limited income.
