Proposed Agenda for Libertarian National Committee Meeting December 7 & 8, 2013


This was on the LNC Discuss email list

From: Geoffrey Neale Date: Fri, Nov 29, 2013 at 7:15 PM
Subject: [Lnc-business] Dallas LNC meeting proposed agenda

Attached. I had this almost ready a few days ago, but needed confirmation from Mr. Sinawski about his availability before I sent this out.

For the record, my proposed agenda is in conflict with the “canned” agenda in the Policy Manual. I am willing to prepare two, as I have done before, or you can just assume that the “canned” agenda is an alternate option, but we have yet to follow the “canned” agenda during this term.

I have done my best to set the priorities in accordance with the big picture requirements of this meeting, with budget as priority one, and the Audit Committee as priority two, even though they do not follow in that order.

    Sorry to hear about that. If you can make it next weekend I could ride with you from the Greyhound stop closest to you the rest of the way to Dallas. Give me a call 415-690-6352 if interested.

    Some people definitely got screwed over, including LNC members and observers who got to Dallas or halfway points. But we would not have had quorum so it had to be changed..too many cancelled flights and closed roads.

    As some of you know, I have temporarily moved to east Texas from Montana. I am teaching criminal justice and sociology at a small liberal arts college down here. Anyway, I decided to drive to Dallas to attend and check out the LNC board meeting. I drove 4 hours through ice and snow, with bumper to bumper traffic. These Texas drivers are terrible on ice, and I probably saw 40 crashed vehicles on the way to Dallas. I finally got to my brother’s place in Fort Worth and found out that the meeting has been postponed till next weekend. bummer.
