Steering Committee 2017

The Harris County Green Party is led by an elected body called the Steering Committee. The Steering Committee comprises two Co-Chairs (typically one female and one male), a Treasurer, a Secretary, and four At-Large members. This group bears the responsibility of representing the membership, guiding the party, managing the funds, setting the monthly meeting agenda, and acting on behalf of the party between general membership meetings.

Steering Committee members are elected by the general membership and serve a two-year term. We used a preference voting method in our most recent election, February 25, 2017. The Steering Committee meets three weeks before the General Membership meeting (see Calendar).
