The Platform Committee recommends bylaw amendments and convention rule amendments to the assembled delegates during national conventions. Those amendments are then debated and voted on by the delegates.


Committee Terms

As currently configured, there are twenty Platform Committee members, who are selected as follows:

  • One member by each of the five affiliate parties having the greatest per capita sustaining membership as determined for Convention delegate allocations at the most recent Regular Convention.
  • One member by each of the ten affiliate parties having the largest sustaining memberships, excluding those affiliates from (a), as determined for Convention delegate allocations at the most recent Regular Convention.
  • Five members selected by the National Committee.
  • These members shall be selected no later than the last day of the fifth month prior to the Regular Convention.

The members of the Platform Committee generally meet immediately preceding a national convention and 3-6 months before a national convention to consider proposals and adopt a report. The past several terms the committee has discussed matters and conducted some business by email. It has also emailed a survey to LP members soliciting feedback on its proposals.
