The 2020 Libertarian Party of New York State Convention was held online September 26—27, 2020.

Preparation

Jeff Motta is leading a committee to organize the convention. The convention was scheduled to be held at the Radisson Hotel in New Rochelle, but due to the venue limiting their events to a maximum of 50 people, the Convention Committee decided to pursue an online convention held on Zoom. Several participants decided to hold satellite convention sites, including one site in Syracuse.

The theme of the convention was "Breathe Free Again," based on masks designed by Mark Braiman in reference to the government's reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gold sponsors

The following individuals contributed $250 or more to become a gold sponsor of the convention: Cody Anderson, Richard Bell, Mark Braiman, Robert Cocomello, Aaron Commey, Brianna Coyle, Anthony D’Orazio, Daniel Donnelly, Millie Dordal, Jeff Motta, Lora Newell, Rob Power, Thomas Quiter, Paul Sechrist, Charles Senrick, Daniel Singer, and Ilya Schwartzburg

Filling of Vacancies

The State Committee of the Libertarian Party of New York has 68 positions, but only 53 seats were filled at the primary. The remaining 15 vacancies are set to be filled at the convention, and these are the candidates so far:
