The National Chair of the Libertarian Party is essentially the chief spokesperson for the party. The National Chair also is the head of the Libertarian National Committee. The bylaws of the Libertarian Party purposely leave the duties of the Chair vague to allow the chair to take on any duty he sees fit.


The role of the Chair is described in Article 6, Section 3 of the Libertarian Party bylaws:

"The Chair shall preside at all Conventions and all meetings of the National Committee. The Chair is the chief executive officer of the Party with full authority to direct its business and affairs, including hiring and discharging of National Committee volunteers and paid personnel, subject to express National Committee policies and directives issued in the exercise of the National Committee's plenary control and management of Party affairs, properties and funds. "
