It’s hard to believe, but the 30th National Convention of the Communist Party is just five weeks away.
All Party Districts have held their local conventions and elected delegates to the big event.
Delegations are busy raising money and making travel arrangements. We are also excited to announce that a number of representatives of fraternal parties around the world have confirmed their presence in Chicago. Workshops and panels are being organized.
But one of the things we are most proud of is the fact that over 900 members have answered the call and paid a $10 Convention Assessment — adding up to $9500 of our goal of $10,000 from 1000 members.
This amount doesn’t come close to covering the cost of facility rental, travel, equipment, and everything else, but it shows the commitment of the whole party to the success of the Convention and is a very needed contribution towards covering the event’s costs.
Of course, if you already paid you assessment or are not a member of the Communist Party, you can still support our convention by making a donation in any amount. Your donation will help us have a successful Convention and share it with the whole membership and the public.
Remember, the Convention Discussion continues right up through the Convention itself. And during the Convention, you will be able to watch live video broadcasts of some of the speeches and panels and participate even if you are not in the hall in Chicago. If you have already participated in the discussion on our website or Facebook, watched our webinar presentations online, or plan to follow the proceedings from home, we need your support to keep doing what we do.
Join me and hundreds of other party members in paying your assessment or make your donation today! See you in Chicago and online!
