There are currently five (5) operational divisions of the LPO Executive Committee, which have the power to add divisions where they make sense. The Directors and Deputy Directors coordinate the day to day operations of their respective divisions and work together with other directors to advance common objectives. While often members of the Executive and Central Committee, Directors must be an Ohio resident but don’t have to hold elected positions in the party. One or more Deputy Directors are encouraged for all the divisions. Directors and Deputies are non-voting members of the Executive Committee. While they are expected to attend Executive Committee meetings, such attendance can be virtual.
Directors are tasked to delegate, to our committed volunteers, the tasks and roles of the division and Party based on a well communicated and understood appreciation for the amount of time and resources any volunteer has to offer the cause. The more resources we have at every level makes us a stronger organization.
