Promote Budget and Process Efficiency

I will be pushing for process and budget evaluation – not a forensic investigation – just a streamlining of what we’re doing. We need to grow the party now, but to do that, we need to do more with less – and utilize our staff in ways that better fit their expertise. 
 
I will not dismiss moving our HQ to a different location, or even being dual-homed, if that will save the party money.

Improve the LNC's Image and Remove Barriers

I will heal division by eschewing factionalism and bringing parties to the negotiation table – our meetings will be discussion, not fight. I recognize that this is going to be a tough job.  I’ve done it before.  
 
We will utilize the strengths of the LNC members, especially when it comes to committee leadership. When we set our committees up to succeed, we all grow.
 
Internal marketing of the LNC, beyond the quarterly newspaper, so the party sees the hard work the LNC is doing.

Build A Risk Mitigation and Business Continuity Plan

We need a plan, both for the party and for the staff, for future pandemics and other disasters. Little contingency planning has taken place, beyond the ad hoc for this convention.
 
We need to, as a party, focus on data loss prevention, be the loss be because of a disaster, or a staff member leaving, or loss of ballot access in a state party. This needs to be part of the business continuity plan.
 
There are other risk points specific to the LP Staff. For example, there is no human resources department to speak of.  This needs to change, because this puts the party at great personal and financial risk. I will lead the campaign to make that happen.
 
I will sit a committee to review and revamp the policy manual.

Grow membership

I will direct marketing to focus on our principles. We are a big tent party, and for many voters, a much better fit than the Democrats or Republicans. We need to make sure the doors to that tent are easy to see from the ivory towers of the duopoly.
 
Outreach is critical to the growth of our party, and I will champion efforts to expand the party beyond our traditional base, without compromising our principles.
 

I will continue the membership growth initiatives currently in place, and evaluate them for improvement.

As a party, we need to focus resources on strengthening the party where we have weak presence.  One of those areas of weakness is our presence in the US Territories.  I will spearhead a campaign to kickstart territory affiliates in Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, the United States Virgin Islands, and American Samoa.  

Another area of growth is political outreach. I will reach out to potential candidates and sitting politicians who align with us, for potential co-marketing or even re-registration opportunities. I will NOT compromise our principles, but highlight them.

Focus on Fundraising

The LP has lost a lot of donors over the past four years. I will reach out to them and bring them back.
 
I will evaluate the development activities already in place and I will make specific changes, catering to the strengths of those on the LNC and on LP staff where possible.
