Volunteer Opportunities Volunteers help make the convention experience better for everyone. We need volunteers for numerous things, but especially with AV. Please sign up to volunteer at https://ca.lp.org/convention-volunteers/.
Electronic Voting - Bring a Device!! We will be using the Porcupine app developed by our Interim Executive Director, T.J. Ferreira, for elections at the convention. Porcupine requires a web-enabled device (computer, tablet, or phone). While paper ballots will still be made available for those without access to a device, we encourage all voting State Central Committee members to bring such a device in order to streamline the process.
Electronic Voting - Training Sessions There will be three training sessions conducted over Zoom to learn how to use this app.
The California LP State Convention is coming next month, May 14-16, in Visalia. Everyone is welcome. Members are encouraged to come and should let the LPVC Chair know if they would like to attend as a voting delegate. All information is on the state site ca.lp.org. There are different levels of participation and pricing. (The basic level is free.) And be sure to make your reservation at the Marriott, the convention hotel. There will be speakers, vendor tables, breakout workshops, hospitality rooms and, of course, a business session. Hope to see you there!
