Resolution Submitted by Art Perlo, Connecticut District


Basic information about our membership is an essential tool for evaluating our policies, our work, and the work of our national and state/district organizations,

Therefore be it Resolved:
  • State/district organizations, and those responsible for unorganized areas, shall report annually on the status of the Party in their area. The overall status of the Party nationally shall then be reported to the National Committee each year.
