There are new rules for the apportioning of seats on the Green Party of the United States National Committee. This will give California significantly more seats on the Natioinal Committee (now 11 National Delegates.
There is an anti-corporate attitude among many Greens, but there is one practice of good corporations that we should adopt. Even as a first level manager in a major corporation (IBM) I understood that one of my responsibilities was to identify and develop my own replacement. The health of the company depended on our ability to continue to provide good new managers to replace those who retired, opted out or left the company for one reason or another.
I do not see that happening at all within the workings of the GPCA. With very few exceptions, there is no sense of anyone taking those specific steps to improve our level of performance.
The exceptions that I would want to note are: (1) Shane Que Hee whose work on the Platform Committee always appears to have an educational element to it, helping people understand what it takes to get the current task completed; and (2) the work of the Campaign and Candidates Working Group with Warner Bloomberg. CCWG has, of necessity, a responsibility to provide guidance and training for candidates and their campaign staffs.
I think that we should be cautious about any one person serving in too many roles concurrently. If a person were to be on a county council, hold a state level CoCo position and also be a National Delegate, it is likely that they will not be able to perform equally well at all tasks.
I would like to hear all new members (to be selected at the next plenary) to respond to the question of how their selection will affect their ability to continue their current tasks within the GPCA.
