LPIA ExComm to Be Elected at State Convention

The Libertarian Party of Iowa is governed by an Executive Committee. This group of men and women serve two-year terms and are elected by the membership at state conventions held in odd-numbered years. The Executive Committee, or ExComm, serves the same purpose as any other board, including setting direction for the party, deciding funding issues, and voting on general business items.

To be eligible for the ExComm, a person must be a voting member of the LPIA and registered as a Libertarian on the State’s voter registration rolls. If you are interested in serving on the ExComm, please contact

The current members of the ExComm have stated their willingness to serve another term. However, many people in the LPIA see strength in a party where there are multiple candidates for an office. This applies to candidates for the ExComm, too.

The LPIA does not have a deadline for putting one’s name forth to serve on the ExComm.  If you are interested, or think you might be interested, in serving on the LPIA’s governing committee, do not hesitate to reach out to the chairman at, or to any of the current members for more information.

Another presidential election year will soon be here. The ExComm elected at the March 28, 2015, LPIA State Convention will help decide and promote the Libertarian Party’s candidate for president. The ExComm will also be instrumental in helping the LPIA improve on its historic performance for state and federal candidates in the 2014 general election.
