An informal policy has been irregularly enforced that excludes Green Party
members from news conferences held by GP US. This proposal seeks to ensure
that all members, as observers only, can hear the public statements made by
candidates or others in the name of the GP US.


When a news conference is held by the Green Party of the United States, the
convenor will set the news conference in a room or other place that will
accommodate anticipated media representatives and also any members of the
Green Party of the United States and its affiliated parties who are
interested in attending, as observers only. News conferences of the GP US
will always be open to all members, as observers only who are instructed not
to speak or applaud during the news conferences.

The numbers of attending members provided for shall be in reasonable
relation to the timing of the news conference. Specifically, when a news
conference is held in conjunction with a national convention or other
sizeable meeting of the GP US, the numbers of potential attending members at
the news conference shall be reasonably estimated based on the number of
attendees at that GP US meeting. Following news conferences, the speakers
at the news conferences will be available for questions from the attending
members, after the exit of the news media representatives.


Planning by news conference convenors.
