“2. The website mainesocialists.org, e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org, and the Twitter account @mainesocialists shall pass to the custody of the Socialist Party of Southern Maine;
“3. The name ‘Socialist Caucus,’ along with the Facebook page under that name, shall be offered for the use of those former members of the Socialist Caucus who wish to continue attempting to reform the Maine Green Independent Party and the Green Party of the United States;
“4. Each socialist organization represented in the Socialist Caucus of Maine (SPUSA, Socialist Alternative, ISO, and organized socialists in the MGIP adopting the name ‘Socialist Caucus’) shall be invited to select one representative to serve on an ongoing ‘Socialist Coordinating Committee’ with the purpose of organizing joint action in areas of principled agreement.
