You are invited to the next GPCA General Assembly, Saturday/Sunday June 27-28 in San Jose. The General Assembly is the party's primary decision-making body. See the draft agenda. Delegates are chosen by counties. Please have your County Party send its delegate list here. Other Greens are welcome to attend as provided for in this policy.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to technical issues we have extended the registration deadline to June 10th. After that, prices will go up as detailed below. Please also note that the primary location has changed.
Registration is now open below and will be $40 through
June 1 June 10 and $50 afterwards. All registrations include lunch and a light breakfast on Sunday. All meals will be vegetarian or vegan. There is also a single day registration of $21/day for either Saturday or Sunday and $25/day after June 1 June 10.
The General Assembly will meet in conjunction with the US Social Forum (June 24-28) (Facebook Event), which will include several Green Party sponsored workshops. The GPCA has obtained a special discounted USSF registration fee of $20 if you register below along with your General Assembly registration ($60 total GPCA & USSF).
The primary location of the US Social Forum - San Jose will be at the Washington United Youth Center (921 South First St., San Jose, CA). All events and workshops will take place either at the Youth Center or at other locations within short walking distance along First Street. The "First Street Strip" is a vibrant pedestrian community area, and Greens are encouraged to participate and connect with the local community. Come to the Youth Center first, and you will be able to find other locations from there.
TRANSIT OPTIONS: Washington United Youth Center (Google Map) is located 1.7 miles from the San Jose Diridon Station (served by Amtrak, Caltrain, and VTA). From Diridon, take the VTA Route 68 bus to 1st and Oak/Martha (about 20 mins, busses run every 15 mins). Closest Light Rail station is Virginia (about 15 min walk), but the 68 bus from Diridon is best unless you are already coming from elsewhere on the light rail.
Hotels in downtown San Jose are extremely expensive. The closest affordable hotels are Motel 6 San Jose South, and Motel 6 Fremont South. If you are driving, hotels are less expensive up along the east bay (Fremont, Hayward). If you are taking transit, find something along El Camino further up the peninsula (Mountain View, Redwood City, San Carlos, even as far up as SFO), near a Caltrain station, then follow the transit directions via Diridon above.
