LNC Staff

LNC Staff refers to personnel responsible for national Libertarian Party business who are not themselves members of the LNC. They may be employees or contractors, and may do their work in the national headquarters, at some other fixed location, or in the field (e.g., affiliate support, ballot access projects).

The way that these personnel are organized has varied over the years. Generally there has been one person, with a title like "National Director" or "Executive Director", who has hiring and supervisory authority over all or most of the rest of the staff. But at various times specific functions have been performed by staff who report directly to the national Chair or to an LNC subcommittee.

Note that although these people are collectively referred to as LNC Staff, and they have usually provided some support for the LNC's function as a committee (e.g., arranging for a meeting location, copying/distributing reports) most of their work is not of this nature.
