Most of the May 2, 2018 Monthly Meeting will be discussing the just completed CP National Committee Meeting in Denver, CO April 20-21, 2018. We will discuss the three Resolutions that were submitted by the State Parties and the resulting votes on them by the NCM in attendance. We will also discuss the next two National Committee Meetings for Fall 2018 and the Spring of 2019. Another topic of discussion will be on our petition signature gathering for Ballot Access that is due at the Secretary of State’s Office in Santa Fe by June 28, 2018. This will be the first monthly meeting to be chaired by our newly elected State Chairman, John W. “JW” Fakes of Albuquerque.
CPNM will be represented at the NCM in Denver by new State Chairman John Fakes who will be accompanied by new Vice-Chairman Bob Bowen, and newly re-elected Treasurer Charleen Bishop. A complete report on the NCM will be posted on this website after we return from Denver.
Our regular CPNM Monthly Meeting will be convened as a State Convention at 6:45 P.M. MDT at the Manzano Mesa Multi-Generational Center at 501 Elizabeth St SE in Albuquerque to vote for a new State Chairman for a 4-year Term. So far, we only have one person who has filed the form with us to run for that office. To qualify for the office, you must be registered with our Party, be a paid member ($25 per year), complete the form downloadable on this website under the “Join” option, and attend the Convention on April 4, 2018. The application must be completed and in our hands by March 31, 2018. My 4-year Term as State Chairman will end when the vote count is completed and verified at the Convention and I turn the gavel over to the new State Chairman. The Vice-Chairman is selected by the new State Chairman. I will assist in the transfer of duties and I plan on remaining as a National Committee Member and will be attending the National Committee Meeting in Denver, CO on April 19-21, 2018. So far we have three Committee Members paid up and registered for the Denver Meeting. If you are interested in becoming a National Committee Member, the cost is $100 per year and that gives you voting rights at both Committee Meetings held in different locations throughout the United States. Hotel Reservations for that Meeting must be made by March 28, 2018 and you can find all instructions for attending on the Constitution Party National website at: http://www.constitutionparty.com/

The Constitution Party of New Mexico will be holding their monthly meeting on Wednesday, March 7, 2018, at 6:45 P.M.at the Manzano Mesa Multi-Generational Center in Albuquerque, at 501 Elizabeth St, SE. Check at the front desk for the Room number, as they have other events going on that leaves our regular room unavailable until Tax Season ends in mid-April. We will be discussing things like reacquiring ballot-access by June 28, 2018, our State Convention in April 2018 to select new officers, so contact me (Bob Bowen) via the website, or phone me at (505) 916-5276 if you would like to run for State Chairman, Treasurer, or Secretary for the Term April 2018-April 2022. I told Frank Fluckiger, the National Chairman that I could only be Chairman in NM for one term as I would be turning 80 years of age in the middle of the next term. So far, I have received one person interested in running for State Chairman. The main requirements are that you have to be a registered voter in New Mexico and registered with the Constitution Party of New Mexico (CPNM), and you also have to pay $25 per year to be an official member of CPNM to hold office. The position of Vice-Chairman of CPNM is appointed by the State Chairman. The State Chairman also has to become a National Committee Member by paying the $100 annual dues and make their best attempt to attend at least one National Committee Meeting each year. The Spring 2018 NCM will be held April 19-21, 2018 in Denver, Colorado. Details can be found on the CP National website: http://www.constitutionparty.com/
