We the undersigned Chairmen of the Southern Party of Georgia and The Georgia Party hereby issue this CONVENTION CALL. The two Southern Parties in Georgia will meet in joint state convention for the following purposes:
Formally merge the two parties and determine a name for the Unified Party.
Unify the constitution of the two parties into a single governing document.
Elect a full slate of statewide officers for the Unified Party.
Establish a political agenda for the year 2001.
The convention will be held at the Plantation Lodge in Jackson, Georgia on 28 October 2000. To cover costs of the event, a modest registration fee of $10 per member is requested. Although registration will be permitted at the door, participants are encouraged to pre-register using the attached form. Participants registered by 20 October 2000 will receive a registration packet in the mail, which will include an entry ticket, directions to the event, a tentative agenda, constitution details to be determined in conference, and statements from candidates for office.
The terms of office for the current officers of both parties will terminate at the convention. We are actively soliciting candidates for all statewide offices, including State Chairman, Vice-Chairmen, Treasurer, and Secretary. If you are interested in serving in any of these positions, please consider running for one of these offices. On the attached registration form, indicate the office for which you intend to run, and, if you wish, include a Statement of Candidacy (300 words or less) in which you state your reasons for running and your qualifications for the position. Statements received prior to 20 October 2000 will be included in the pre-registration packet that is mailed to all attendees who have registered by that time.
While all Georgians are invited to attend this historic convention, only current members of The Georgia Party or the Southern Party of Georgia will be permitted to vote in convention. If your membership has lapsed, you may use the attached form to renew your membership. You may also photocopy the form and use it to sign up and register friends and family members.
While this has been an exciting year for both the Southern Party of Georgia and The Georgia Party, the year 2001 shows even more promise as we move forward as one United Party. We look forward to seeing you at the convention!
