GPNS Policy Conference 2018
October 27, 2018
October 27, 2018 | 9 am – 5 pm | RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org
Policy Conference, Green Party of Nova Scotia
Upstairs from the Stone Soup Cafe, 41 Water St, Pictou, NS B0K 1H0
Our proposed policies are ready. Find the final text of the proposed policy on our website: http://greenpartyns.ca/policies/draft-policies-2018/proposedfinaltext/. Password has been emailed to members. The policy has been open for discussion since August. Therefore, the meeting will be an opportunity to vote or put the particular policy on pause. There will not be extensive wordsmithing of these policies at the conference.
Your next opportunity to propose policy will be in the lead up to the AGM next spring. We anticipate policy discussions every six months from now on. Which is to say, if you were looking forward to a deep discussion, there will ample opportunities to come. In fact, the best way to get involved with policy development is to get involved locally or regionally. Feel welcome to ask us how!
Underlying our policy efforts is the basic understanding that new information will lead to revised positions: we will continue to seek better evidence and information on which to base our decisions. Meanwhile, we will continue to develop our processes to ensure that our public statements reflect your will, that is, the will of our members.
We look forward to seeing you in Pictou! If you are able to join us the evening before for a casual, social gathering, you are more than welcome! More details to come. Be watching your email or our Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/NSGreens/
