America's Party News
The date and time for the 2012 America's Party National Convention have now been set!
Saturday, February 18, 2012
2:00 pm Eastern
Your Front Porch (or, wherever else you happen to be)
We will be convening on the America's Summit conference line, and the proceedings will be recorded and livestreamed on Talkshoe Radio.
If you are an America's Party Affiliate in good standing, and a signer of the America's Party Leadership Pledge, let us know if you would like to be considered by the Credentials Committee as a possible Delegate from your state. (As of this writing on Feb. 2nd, a large number of slots have yet to be filled. If you haven't signed the Pledge, please do it NOW!)
BYOBASH (Bring Your Own Balloons And Silly Hats!)
You can email the Chairman and the Affiliations Committee with any questions, comments, or suggestions at:
We will respond to all inquiries just as quickly as we possibly can.
The views of all America's Party Affiliates will be given full consideration by all of our party's leaders as this process goes forward. So, don't be shy. Tell us what you think! (But please remember, none of us are perfect, and every single bit of work that is being done is being done by volunteers. Everyone is doing the best they can, with extremely limited resources, so please be kind!)
We will be making further details available to all Affiliates right here, and via email, as everything is hammered out. So, please keep your eye on this thread, and on your inbox, in the coming days!
A couple of important notes:
Several possible presidential candidates are being discussed right now. If you have ideas in that regard, please let us know, and we will work with you to explore what may or may not be possible. But remember, whomever you might suggest must be endeavoring to live up to the principles and purposes of our Platform, Personal Affiliation Agreement, and the Leadership Pledge. That's not negotiable for any of us, of course.
The final slate of candidates will be promulgated throughout the party in about a week or so, and then, during the week leading up to the convention, all Affiliates will be given full access to interview and deeply question each of them. We are also scheduling an extensive presidential debate for the night before the vote. The details of that process are currently being finalized, so stay tuned!
The final slate of credentialed Delegates, the proposed Rules, the Agenda, and the final Schedule, along with explicit details about what you will need to do as a Delegate, will be released at least forty-eight hours before we convene.
Again, keep an eye on this space. We will try to post regular updates as details become available.
Remember, the announcement above may be revised slightly in its content in the days ahead, so bear that in mind and try to reread it once in a while to make sure you don't miss anything important!
God bless you all, and Godspeed!
For Life, Liberty, and the Constitution,
Tom Hoefling, America's Party Chairman
