1. The Bylaws Committee has submitted a draft of revised INGP Bylaws. Changes include eliminating redundant and conflicting provisions and titles (e.g. the confusing title of Coordinators is eliminated), clarifying the hierarchy of the Chairman and Assistant Chairman, clarifying Congress delegates and voting, and clarifying membership and the route to chapter affiliation.
2. A member has submitted a proposal to change the name of the Indiana Green Party to the Green Party of Indiana.
There will be a discussion and vote to adopt these revisions at the INGP Congress. These votes require approval from 75% of voting delegates and voting members in attendance at the Congress.
According to the Indiana Green Party Bylaws, any active member in good standing of the INGP shall have the right to speak to Congress regarding any proposal. Proposals must be submitted in writing to the Coordinators at least 45 days prior to the Congress. The Coordinators shall publish proposals on the INGP web site and general electronic mailing lists 30 days prior to Congress. The annual INGP Congress shall have the authority, on a case-by-case basis, to override, by a vote of 75% of voting delegates and voting members in attendance at the Congress, the requirement of advance submission of resolutions for bylaws and platform changes and resolutions for other purposes.
