VIP 2018 Party Council Meetings
Please record the following dates for VIP Party Council monthly meetings for 2018. We are moving the meetings to Thursday evenings for member convenience and in order to increase attendance. Everyone who supports the VIP is welcome to attend.
This year, we will repeat the Agenda in both Victoria and Nanaimo sequential meetings. Victoria supporters need not attend the next Nanaimo meeting unless they wish to. Likewise, UpIsland supporters need not attend the next Victoria meeting unless they wish to.
Victoria VIP supporters may have relatives or friends living north of the Malahat that they would like to invite to the Nanaimo meetings. Likewise, Uplsland VIP supporters may want to invite their Victoria relatives and friends to attend the Victoria meetings.
The Victoria VIP meetings are at the new Quality Foods store at #110-27 Helmcken Road (opposite the Victoria General Hospital, View a Google Map) in View Royal. They are in the second floor Upper Floor meeting room opposite the coffee shop from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm on the following Thursday evenings:

Attention Potential VIP Candidates!
If you wish to be a VIP candidate in the next provincial election, please bring your resume. Our VIP Candidate Selection Committee will interview you and explain what is required.
Our VIP goal is to have a full slate of 14 qualified candidates for the next provincial election. We want to have candidates in place as soon as possible so that we can help them with training, publicity and fundraising events.
The Importance of Networking
A political rule of thumb is that each membership in a political party represents 10 votes in the general election. Therefore, 1,000 VIP members would represent 10,000 votes.
Networking to increase our VIP membership is our main goal in 2018. A VIP membership is only $30 per year, for which you receive a tax credit receipt. This can be done personally at our VIP Party Council meetings, at special events or on our VIP website, www.VanIsleParty.com/donate.
Donations up to $1,200 per person would also be gratefully received. Business and union donations are no longer accepted.
