Proposal #10: Eliminate Redundant Language for Officers Being LNC Members

DRAFT This is a draft proposal which has not yet been voted on by the committee.

Proposed by Alicia Mattson.

  • Problem: This is a redundancy cleanup proposal. The sentence proposed for elimination is redundant with Bylaws Article 8.2, which says “The National Committee shall be composed of the following members: a. the officers of the Party…” In our organization, there is no parliamentary difference between a "full voting member" as it is phrased in Article 7.3 as compared to just "members" as used in Article 8.2. It is always a risk to have the same concept in two places in the bylaws, as future changes could amend one and forget to amend the other for consistency, leaving a problematic contradiction.
  • Solution: Eliminate the redundant provision by deleting Article 7.3.
  • Benefits:

Bylaws of the Libertarian Party


  1. The officers shall be full voting members of the National Committee.


  • removed - red, strikethrough
  • added - blue, underline, italic
