The Libertarian Party of Arapahoe County (LPAC) holds a business meeting on the second Thursday of the month. At this meeting board members determine the course of our affiliate. Since our organization is a Political Party Committee, registered with the State of Colorado, we are able to accept donations. Business meetings focus on fundraising, candidate cultivation, outreach development, and other functions needed to grow the Libertarian Party. Arapahoe County residents, who are also members of the Libertarian Party, are eligible to vote at LPAC meetings. If you are eligible to vote at LPAC meetings, and have donated $20 or more in any calendar year, you may vote on issues that require LPAC to spend money.
Chairperson - Brenda Francis
Brenda became a registered Libertarian in 2009, after she realized the Libertarian Party represented her values, a deficiency both major parties failed to do. Francis is a freelance writer, composing email marketing in HTML for small, medium, and large organizations. She owns a central vacuum company with her husband. She spends her time gardening, writing about wine (she is a sommelier), and championing smaller government, while promoting liberty. She is an amateur carpenter, and encourages women to learn to handle power tools.
Secretary-Treasurer - Amy Lunde-Provines
Amy Lunde-Provines has lived in Arapahoe County for over sixteen years, and registered as a Libertarian in 2008. The 2012 election cycle spurred her into activism, and she has since become heavily involved in the Libertarian Party at all levels. Amy currently serves as the Secretary-Treasurer of LPAC, the Social Media Manager of the Libertarian Party of Colorado, and the Director of the Social Media Ambassadors of LP National.
In her personal life, Amy enjoys listening to music (in a car at excessive volume is her preferred method -- perfect for singing along), spending time with friends and family, and she has been a genealogy buff for over a decade.

Outreach Director - Alex Yukhananov
Alex is currently a philosophy student at the University of Colorado, Denver. He spends most of his time producing music, participating in community-oriented events, or reading. Throughout his life, Alex has been determined to make a living entirely off of what he enjoys, whether it's through making music, educating others, or simply living off the land.
For the past 4 years, Alex has felt disenfranchised by the mainstream political parties of his time. During this period, the Libertarian party has proven to be one of the few remaining political parties with a consistent set of values; values that are not just a political platform, but an ethics, a manner in which an individual conducts themselves. This in-itself, is the major reason why Alex joined the Libertarian party.
Membership Director - Paul Langford
Paul retired from a career in the United States Air Force in Colorado Springs. After being stationed abroad and various places around the US, he decided Colorado was the place he wanted to live. The formation of larger government and crazy spending drove Langford from the Republican Party, where he never fit with the R's at all. He became a registered Libertarian in 2004.
