There was good discussion for each of the speakers/candidates.
We also adopted the 2018 Platform and nominated 3 delegates to the national LP Convention in June. They are:

Thank you to all the speakers, candidates that presented and to Ken Chandler and Heavenly Ryan for helping with organizing the convention. Ken Chandler also paid out of his own pocket for the convention to be videotaped. We will be posting videos from the convention shortly.
We will soon announce meeting dates to meet with more potential candidates and to decide on nominations.
