Our Endorsement Process


We have an Electoral Committee that oversees the candidate vetting and endorsement process.  If you wish to have GPOS consider an endorsement request, whether as a candidate running for office or if you are leading a citizen initiative effort, we ask that you fill out a short questionnaire to provide us with a bit of background. We advertise endorsement votes ahead of time so that members know when opportunities for this will come up. If you wish to schedule time to speak at a general membership meeting, please contact one of the Coordinating Committee members or just email this questionnaire as the form explains, and someone will get back to you about an interview and/or will work with you to schedule time on an upcoming meeting agenda.

Text of endorsement application is below, or download a PDF of it here.
