Not sure if you are a member of the Nationwide Leadership Council?
Are you a localcoordinator of a local tea party or 912 groups? Then you are a member of the Nationwide Leadership Council.
Why do we have these calls each week?
Tea Party Patriots is a grassroots, bottom-up organization. Our best ideas come from thelocal coordinators and grassroots supporters. Before deciding on a national course of action unless it is extremely time sensitive information, Tea Party Patriots National Coordinators run ideas by the Local Coordinators and Nationwide Leadership Council for refinement and approval.
What happens on the call?
Generally, in the first 30 minutes the National Coordinators give an update from the national scene, announcements are made, proposed projects are thrown out, and legislative updates are given. We do our very best to get the announcements out of the way in the very beginning. Next, we discuss any upcoming projects or ideas. This is an open discussion and anyone can participate in it and all are encouraged to do so. Then we open the call for general questions. You can ask any question here that you need answered. We also do polls to get your feedback during the call and so you can see what others are thinking as well.
