Minutes: Summary in the November 1972 LP News

There was a meeting on this date in which 12 of the 18 voting members were present. Several resolutions were passed, and the following state petitions were affiliation were approved:

Bringing the total of recognized state LP affiliates to 15, up from 8 prior to the ExecComm meeting.

A petition from Arizona was rejected, after evidence was presented that there were irregularities in that state's temporary organization. A petition from Wisconsin was approved subject to resubmission with signatures, rather than typed names. A motion by some California LP members to remove recognition from the currently recognized organization, headed by Alan Coon, and accept a petition from their group instead, was rejected. It was voted that in the future, petitions for affiliation cannot be submitted until a state convention has been held, at which the National LP Statement of Principles is endorsed, officers elected, and a state Constitution and By-Laws adopted. This will hopefully eliminate problems of the type which arose in the Arizona and California situations.

James Bryant of Oregon resigned from his At-Large position. Paul Hodgson, the Region 8 Representative filled that slot leaving a vacancy in Region 8.

It was decided to publish LP News bi-monthly rather than monthly and the month of June was selected for the National Convention 1973.
