February 2011 Newsletter

Greetings I'm Jorden Leonard, Executive Director of the Portland Green Party.

Bylaws updated, house parties planned, new single payer healthcare campaign.

This last 26th we had our January member's meeting.  We voted and approved revisions to our bylaws.  We also added Single Payer Healthcare to our list of active campaigns, joining IRV and VOE.  If you are interested in helping out with a specific campaign let me know and I will direct you to the appropriate campaigner.

Minutes for January meeting are here.  Proposed agenda for this month's meeting here, let me know if you want to add something.  Meeting location for this month is Metanoia Peace House at 2116 Northeast 18th Avenue from 7-8 pm/8-9 pm on Wednesday the 23rd.  From March on, our regular meeting location will be the community room at People's Coop, which will have Wifi.

AFSCME's environmental caucus meeting was canceled this month.  Next month's meeting is still on.  They plan on meeting every second Thursday at 6 pm.  I can bring guests if anyone is interested.

I'd love help with VOE website if anyone is familiar with wordpress, particularly e-commerce plugins.

Hope to see you all at the Peace House.
