Membership Meeting

The yearly Membership Meeting is the highest decision-making body within May First/People Link. It meets annually to hear and discuss progress reports, approve the yearly work plan goals for the organization and elect its Leadership Committee. An internet organization run by its members is very rare, probably the only one of its kind in this country and ours reflects the belief that the Internet, as the most democratic and open communications technology, was developed by humanity to further free communication and democracy and that an internet organization should reflect those principles.

With over 550 members, a stable Leadership Committee, a robust technology infrastructure (which is the centerpiece of our work) and an impressive record of involvement in movement activities in this country and world wide, May First/People Link views itself as an authentic mass membership organization of the progressive movement.

The Membership Meeting occurs annually. This year, on September 17, 2011, the meeting:

Received and discussed a Report to the Membership Meeting presented by the Co-Directors and staff

Approved a six-point 2011-12 Plan of Work

Elected a 15 person Leadership Committee
