Libertarian Party Transparency Caucus resolution authorizing the “My LP” project

The LP Transparency caucus passed the following resolution by a vote of 4-2:

Whereas the LP Transparency Caucus seeks to build greater engagement between the membership and the leadership of the national party, for a more cohesive Libertarian Party that transcends ideological battles;

Whereas party documents of interest to the membership such as meeting agendas, the LNC Policy Manual, budget and other reports, executive committee meeting minutes and pre-2004 minutes can not be found on the LP website;

Whereas there is an urgent need to promptly provide information about the administration of the party to its members so that they may play an active role in the running of the party, thus making for a more effective and accountable LP; and

Whereas members of the caucus have the technical skills, resources and commitment necessary to fill this gap: now therefore, be it

Resolved, the LP Transparency Caucus authorizes the formation of the “My LP” project to publish a website for use by LP members which will enable them to access party information, discuss it and provide feedback to their representatives and appoints George Donnelly as project leader.

There is widespread consent within the caucus about the need for such a project. However, there was some controversy over the domain name; Rachel Hawkridge says that she unsuccessfully tried to register the same domain name (…nothing there but a placeholder yet) for a different project which she is working on a couple of days earlier.

    Since I have been preaching openess for some time I’ll ask how does one get involved? Not that I have a lot of extra time, but this is one important intraparty issue.
