Background

The GPUS Fundraising Committee in conjunction with the Finance and Steering Committee presented and held workshops on GPUS fundraising at the 2006 and 2007 Annual National Meetings aimed at increasing the GNCís involvement in fundraising. GPUS has not had a noticeable increase in delegate fundraising and has continued to struggle financially without the involvement of the GNC in fundraising. GPUS is currently operating between $20,000 and $30,000 in debt. The 2008 presidential election has required a 59% increase in proposed spending just to meet the basic needs of GPUS. The purpose of this proposal is to involve of the GNC and other Greens in the GPUS fundraising efforts.

Proposal

The Green National Committee (GNC) shall be in recess from Monday March 3, 2008 to Sunday March 30, 2008 (4 weeks).
