The Libertarian National Committee holds its meetings in various locations, both for the convenience of its members, and to afford local residents the opportunity to attend. In March the LNC will hold its meeting in Rosemont.
The meetings are open to anyone and free to attend (except during executive sessions when the room is cleared). There is time for public comment at the beginning of the meeting on Sat and at the close of the meeting Sun. If someone who is not on the LNC would like to speak outside of the public comment segments, they need to ask permission via their LNC Regional Rep. The Rep then asks permission from the board on their behalf.
On Saturday, the meeting starts at 9 am and normally finishes around 6 pm. Sunday they start at 8 or 9 a.m. and go to 3 pm or so. Typically Saturday a.m. is reports from the Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Staff. Additional reports from various committees and regions may follow in the afternoon. Then they get to action items (like committee appointments) Saturday afternoon and take on ‘new business” on Sunday.
The meetings are scheduled to be held in the “Walden Room” on the 8th floor.
There will also be a Meet & Greet reception at the hotel restaurant, Basil's, on Saturday evening 7-9. A separate meetup will be posted.
