The People’s Alliance approved bylaws for the PAC at a special PAC meeting held on January 29th following the PA Membership Meeting. The PA-PAC for years has been operating on institutional knowledge. However, due to increasing participation in our endorsement process and desire for consistency and official operational rules, our PAC formed a committee to formalize these traditions. Our vision is that future endorsement meetings spend less time on procedures and more time debating candidates. That is why, in addition to bylaws, we developed endorsement meeting rules and a menu card for candidate selection. PA wants all members to be able to participate in our democratic decision making process and feel that their voice is heard.
We owe a big “thank you” to our bylaw committee, and especially to Tom Miller, whose legalese made this possible.
