Our Bylaws form the foundation for our structure, and define the roles and responsibilities for our Officers and opportunities for our Members. This is an organization formed of, by and for the progressive activists that make up our membership. It’s all about you as an activist and a citizen.

N.B. Please be aware that the other documents on this page that predate the the latest adopted bylaws and may not be fully consistent with them. Where there is conflict, the current bylaws take precedence. (Note that there was a Transition Plan to manage the February, 2019 bylaws revision, however that has now expired.)
This does not affect the Interim Legislative Appointment Rules which issue from the State Party directly.
