(2) NOMINATIONS OPEN FOR STEERING COMMITTEE ELECTIONS **********************************************************************

Nominations are now open for election to the Steering Committee. Nominations and confirmations (see below) must be received no later than April 30th (two weeks before the State Convention). The terms of five Steering Committee members are ending (Gregg Jocoy, Rolf Baghdady, Leslie Minerd, Nammu Muhammad, and David Whiteman), so five two-year positions will be open. After nominations are closed on April 30th, the Steering Committee will provide a final list of nominees.

Nominations may be emailed (to at scgreenpartyinfo@earthlink.net) or mailed (SCGP, P.O. Box 5341, Columbia, SC 29250).

In order to be eligible to be on the ballot, anyone nominated must certify by April 30th that they (a) are interested in being on the ballot, (b) are a member of the Party, and (c) do not occupy a leadership position in any other political party. All nominees should also submit a brief personal statement for inclusion in the SCGP Bulletin and the State Convention agenda packet.
