State Libertarian Party Officers
Overview. The Libertarian Party of Oregon is governed by a State Committee consisting of elected statewide party officers and delegates from each organized Affiliated County Party (ACP). Officers are elected by the State Committee at business conventions held annually during the second weekend of March. Statewide officers serve one year terms.
Affiliated County Parties (ACPs)
ACP Political Functions. Affiliated County Parties (ACPs) provide a local venue of political activity for Libertarians across Oregon. ACPs recruit, run, and support candidates for local and county office while providing a base of support to those who win elections. By organizing down to the precinct level, ACPs work to maximize Libertarian voter turnout. ACPs can nominate partisan candidates to the November ballot if the districts at issue lie entirely within a county.
ACP Representative and Social Functions. ACPs are able to send representatives to the Libertarian Party of Oregon State Committee. Finally, ACPs have a strong social component and occasionally hold parties, picnics and other activities for members and guests.

The LPO operates according to an adopted Constitution, a set of bylaws, and convention rules. These documents were adopted and are frequently amended at annual business conventions and certain special conventions.
The LPO staff is responsible for making recommendations to and implementing policy adopted by the LPO State Committee.
The LPO Executive Director works under contract for the LPO State Committee and leads a volunteer staff to perform the day-to-day work of the party.
