The Northwest Michigan Libertarians will discuss and approve their 2020 calendar at their November 20th meeting, to be held at Kristen Kuhn’s home at 5452 Heritage Way in Traverse City.
Since 2020 is an election year, the year’s activities will be focused on nominating and assisting local candidates. We will keep our business meetings and other activities to a minimum, to allow members to attend the conventions and work on the election.
Highlights of the proposed calendar include:
- Election Day! We hope to have several local candidates and we hope all of our members will help out when they can at various polling places.
- Five conventions: Related to the election, there is a national convention in June and two state conventions, to be held in March and July. We will have two local conventions, in February and June.
- Annual meet and greet/barbecue in September.
- Four Zoom meetings in January, April, August, and October.
All who are interested in liberty are welcome to any of our meetings and events. You can join our affiliate if you live in Charlevoix, Antrim, Leelanau, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, Benzie, Manistee, Wexford, Missaukee or surrounding counties.
