Proposal #17a: LNC Vote on Convention Fee

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

Proposed by Rich Tomasso.

  • Problem: There is debate every term about whether members who attend the convention should or should not bare at least some of the cost of the event. Reasonable arguments have been made on both sides. Compromise positions have also been proposed. This does have an impact on creating a convention budget.
  • Solution: As this keeps coming up, better to have a formal policy in place to address it and have the decision rest with the LNC. As the leaders of the party, they should take responsibility for a decision affecting all delegates. And make it with enough lead time to establishing a pricing model for registrations.
  • Benefits:

Bylaws of the Libertarian Party


  1. Voting Eligibility:
    1. It shall require a roll call vote of the LNC to authorize or require any sort of fee for a credentialed delegate to attend the business portion of a Regular Convention as outlined in Rule 1. This vote must take place at least 120 days before the start of the Convention. This bylaw shall not prevent the Convention Committees from establishing registration costs for any programming outside of the business portion of the Convention.
