Are you interested in helping to shape policy for the Green Party of Nova Scotia?
If so, the GPNS Policy Convenor is a volunteer position that would interest anyone with a passion for green issues and is excited about the opportunity to develop policy for the GPNS.
In addition to working closely with the Party’s other Policy Convenor (there are two, who share responsibilities equally) and the leadership of the Party, the Policy Convenor will be part of a dedicated and vibrant team working hard to build a compelling and forward looking framework of policies that will take the party to the next election and beyond. As well as passion, a background in policy analysis and development would be very useful along with an ability to convert your ideas to writing in a persuasive and insightful style. Policy development requires teamwork, so a desire to work with, and bring out the best in, other contributors would also be valuable.
The party’s by-laws provide that the Policy Convener and their co-Convenor will facilitate the development of policy through various means but specifically the running of the party’s policy committee. For further information you may refer to by-Laws H, O and P at the following link: Constitution & By-laws
The position is vacant at the moment, so if you or someone you know might be good for the position, and is interested in helping to develop the platform for the Green Party of Nova Scotia in the next election, then please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before Tuesday, September, 8. At that point we will discuss the formal election process which will, at a minimum, include an approval vote by the Executive of the party. If there is more than one candidate, all members of the party will vote.
The successful candidate will fill this role until the 2022 Annual General Meeting, which is most likely to be in April 2022. (The position is nominally a two-year term, but this election is to fill a partial term.)
