5. Participate in a Report from the Executive Director of the Libertarian Party of Nevada to the Executive Committee and ask questions.

This report focuses on the Party's specific progress in the past year on 5 key areas: Donors, Donations, Volunteers, Social Media, and Voter Registration. It also details the goals for the coming year of the Party. This report is compiled from the hard work of the Party's volunteers and leaders in 2017 - if you'd like to join the leadership team, please see positions and an application here.

6. Select Nevada delegates to the 2018 Libertarian National Convention.
You can represent Nevada at the 2018 Libertarian National Convention in New Orleans, LA (NOLA). If you are interested, be sure to nominate yourself - Nevada has 11 slots, but often can fill alternates into other states with vacancies. If you want to go, let us know!
7. Listen to powerful testimony from Libertarian volunteers all over the state.

We'd like to thank our donors, volunteers, and registered voters for making 2017 an incredible year - and we look forward to kicking off the 2018 Election Cycle right!
