Justin O'Donnell State Committee Member, 2016


  • Most of the decisions for the LPMA are made by its legislative body, the LPMA State Committee. The State Committee meets monthly.

The LPMA State Convention elects the State Committee, amends the Party Bylaws and Constitution, amends or adapts a Party Platform, and appoints delegates to the National Convention. The State Convention has historically been held in late winter or early spring. In 2006 the State Committee failed to hold a state convention in a timely way to appoint delegates, and was forced to amend the Party By-Laws retroactively to approve the delegate placeholders appointed by the State Chair.

In June 2006 George Phillies was appointed by the State Committee to organize the next State Convention. Bylaws and other constraints have set the date of this convention to be Saturday September 23, 2006, 10:15 AM at Tweed's Pub on Grove Street in Worcester. There is a hotel in walking distance for persons who cannot travel by motor vehicle on Saturday. The convention registration fee is $28 for LPMA members, including an Italian buffet lunch.

Expected convention speakers are

The Honorable Donald Gorman, LPNH, "Why New Hampshire Democrats are doing well and what we can learn from them"

Mr. Stephen Gordon, LNC Communication Director, on new LNC programs.
