Our party is only as the a strong as the state affiliates that make it up. We're here to help you spread libertarian ideals through the sharing of shared tools, training and best practices. Let's get started!

Goals

Party Infrastructure

It’s essential to have stable party infrastructure that services our states and their county affiliates. This creates party synergy and working together, we spread the workload from national to county volunteers.

Stability

Affiliates are prone to rises and falls with changes in leadership and volunteers turnover. The phrase ‘re-inventing the wheel’ will be a thing of the past. Our services can smooth out these changes and provide a platform to grow from.

Focus on Outreach

Let’s focus on our mission – talking with voters and communicating effectively our libertarian vision. Put behind the worries of back-office operations and infrastructure that isn’t sustained.

Economies of Scale

We greatly reduce costs for affiliates by taking advantage of economies of scale through pooling resources toward strategic investments. These services are built to scale and are continuously improved upon based on feedback, rather than duplicating less effectively, at the state or county level.

Services

Below are some high-level areas. It is not exhaustive.

Ballot Access

Assist state drives that effect party ballot access and strive for 50 state ballot access.

Candidate Recruitment

Help states recruit more candidates and prepare them for what’s ahead.

Assessment & Consulting

We proactively do a state assessment call after each state’s convention to gather their top needs. We also use this opportunity to gather an understanding of what services our affiliates most desire.

Party Collaboration Tools

To facilitate collaboration throughout the Libertarian Party, we have setup a framework for connecting volunteers in the same or similar positions, such as finance, membership, field development and so on. The purpose is to share best practices, recent successes, strategies, ask for help. We are stronger when we work together!

Training

We host in-person regional trainings in “off-years” and a “Day of Education” at the national convention. We also do virtual affiliate support sessions.
