Call to Convention – The Libertarian Party of Oregon (LPO) will hold its 2019 Annual Business Convention at 9:00AM on Saturday, March 16th, at the Pendleton Red Lion Hotel located at 304 SE Nye Ave, Pendleton, OR 97801.  At this convention LPO officers will be elected and amendments to the LPO governing documents will be considered.  As provided for in the LPO Bylaws, “Regular” and “Honorary Lifetime” LPO members will be sent individual notices.  Here is the agenda as provided for under LPO Convention Rules:

RELATED EVENTS – Laura Ebke, an elected state senator from Nebraska affiliated with the Libertarian Party will speak at the convention.  Current LPO Secretary Richard Burke, who has won eight local elections and now chairs the Oregon Government Ethics Commission, will also speak.  On Friday night, the evening before the convention, a social mixer and reception will be held in the hotel lounge.

COMING TOGETHER – Finally, after many years, it looks like the LPO will soon be reuniting under a common set of governing documents and a common set of leaders.  This is your chance to have a say in the rebuilding of your LPO!

ELIGIBILITY – Any registered Libertarian voter in Oregon is eligible to observe the business convention.  Any dues-paying “regular” member or “Honorary Lifetime” member is eligible to vote in the business convention.  You can pay or renew your dues by going to the bottom of this web page and click the yellow “BUY NOW” button!

LPO Membership. $50.  Secure your one-year membership to the LPO.  By joining the LPO as a dues-paying or “regular” member in this way you subscribe to the following statement: “I hold that all individuals have the right to exercise sole dominion over their own lives, and have the right to live in whatever manner they choose, so long as they do not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live in whatever manner they choose.“If you do not want to pay dues but are an Oregon voter registered with the Libertarian Party, you are already a “registered” member of the LPO and may participate in candidate nominating conventions as a voting member, a candidate for partisan public office, or both.  But you will not be eligible to participate in Annual business conventions where internal party business is conducted.

LPO Membership and Lodging.  $140.  This includes your membership, as described above, plus a hotel room at the Pendleton Red Lion Inn.  This ensures you have a room on the night before the convention and will be eligible to participate in the convention on all matters relating to internal party governance.

Hotel Room Only.  $90.  This is for lodging at the convention hotel on the night before the convention,  Only the lodging is included at this price, not LPO dues required for voting at the business convention.  This option is primarily for people who have already paid annual LPO dues.
