Extrapolated from comments left Eddie at Green Party Watch. With a small amount of extrapolation, these ideas are also relevant to other alternative political parties.
Eddie writes, in part:
The California Green Party sent out emails outlining a new campaign that will help add 100,000 new members in the next two years with mostly paid organizers, along with grassroots activists. But the phone number listed on there was the wrong one and I had to go on Facebook to find the person listed on the email, where they gave me a new number to call. I have called that number about 3 times, left messages, and I still haven’t got a response.
I have noticed a recent upsurge in the amount of activity surrounding the Green Party locally and nationally.
The only thing I ask is to update websites, have phone numbers where people can be relied on to answer, make phonebanking a priority where we can contact lingering registered Greens who want to help but have kind of stopped being active, and start getting paid organizers. I cannot stress the last part enough.
Events Calendar page should be filled with something. At least put some notable local Green Parties and the days they meet. Maybe put up some local chapters from cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, New York, and any other major states/cities.
Go to google, type in a the Green Party you are looking for(state or city) call them and ask them if the information is correct on the days they meet. Then put that event up in the events calendar. Perhaps send an email to registered Greens informing them about this website. Just use the database of registered Greens.
Another idea: Have a search feature [..] where you basically type in your zipcode and it locates the nearest Green Party meetup. Is that possible?
In response to Eddie’s comments, Ronald Hardy put up a post about some local Green Party meetups that are coming up in the next few days.
