You can find the new Statement of Principles and Platform on the About Page.

The time has arrived for the annual convention for the Libertarian Party of Kansas (LPKS). It will be held Sunday April 17th 2011 from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm at the Big Gage Shelter House. It is the building located in the same parking lot as the Topeka Zoo in Gage Park (Map to Zoo).  This is also where the 2010 LPKS state convention was held.  

The LPKS welcomes all to attend this convention of the fastest growing political party in Kansas. We are the Party that believes and practices that every voice is just as equal as any other. You can have a voice and it will be listened to. Below are the major agenda items for this year’s convention.

1) Opening Remarks – Andrew Gray, LPKS Chair, will host a general discussion about the state of the Party.  Open remarks will be followed by a question and answer period.

2) KELA Presentation – There will be an in-depth discussion about progress made by the creation and advancement of the Kansas Education Liberty Act (KELA). This discussion will be moderated by Vice Chair Al Terwelp and Policy Researcher Stacey Davis.

3) Platform Revisions Discussion and Vote – It has been a number of years since our LPKS Platform has been updated. As with all political thoughts and actions, our platform needs to continually be renewed to reflect the condition of Kansans. The Platform Committee will be discussing the recommended changes to adjust to the current times and to maintain our integrity. The recommended platform will be voted upon by those in attendance and other suggestions will be taken from those in attendance. The suggestions can be made by anyone in attendance but can only be voted upon by those who are registered Libertarians.

4) Election of LPKS Officers – The last item will be the election of Party officers. All the positions (Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and Coordinators for Congressional Districts of 1, 2, 3, 4) will be up for election. The only position not for election is Policy Researcher which is an appointed position. Anyone who is a registered Libertarian can run for the positions of Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary or Treasurer. A person must reside in the appropriate Congressional District to be eligible for election to the position of District Coordinator. If you are interested in running for one of these positions, please contact  Mike Kerner (current LPKS Secretary) at Secretary@lpks.org to make clear your intent. Any registered Libertarian may also announce during the convention their intention to run for one of the LPKS officer positions.
