The Green Party of the United States officially announced earlier this week that its 2020 Presidential Nominating Convention and Annual National Meeting will take place in cyberspace. GPUS has also extended early registration so that delegates and others may still register for only $100 each. That's right, only. If I recall correctly, registration at Baltimore in 2012 was $120. But that's just the suggested donation: Lots of Greens without the means can negotiate their ticket price downward.
As previously discussed here at dbcgreentx, the decision had been made back in April, but was only announced this week after the organizers had all the particulars nailed down.
One of the unfortunate oversights in the appointment of delegates at the GPTX convention last month was forgetting to inform attendees that there was indeed an admission price for the convention. However, nobody should be too upset about not having to travel to Detroit or book lodging there, thus saving hundreds they might otherwise have spent.
(Cue nostalgic music and slow-mo images of seven Texas Greens back in 2004, including yours truly, traveling to Milwaukee and back in a rented van.)
As always, there are discounted tickets available, particularly for members of one of the identity caucuses or even those who are eligible to join those caucuses.

But I'm excited about a proposed change to the GPUS Bylaws regarding the gender composition of the Coordinated Campaign Committee, which will likely be adopted by Steering Committees and State Executive Committees thereafter (bolds mine):
