The Board of Directors is tasked with overseeing the operations of the Libertarian Pragmatist Caucus. They work together to create a passionate leadership team excited to help grow the Libertarian Party!

Alexander DiBenedetto


Alexander is the Executive Director of the Libertarian Party of Nevada. He came to the Nevada affiliate as a website volunteer and vice-chair of the newly-formed Out for Liberty, a libertarian LGBTQ+ advocacy group. He soon stepped up to the Editor-in-Chief position for the Party and drove the creation of the party’s 2015-2016 newsletter. After this he became the party's Administrative Director, leading the party to a massive surplus financially by the end of 2016 and provided/recommended training courses to assist the party’s volunteers. After the 2017 party reorganization, he was named Executive Director by a unanimous vote of the Executive Committee. His personal goal for the Libertarian Party is to “build a cohesive leadership team from our [the Party’s] wealth of knowledge and talent”, which he knows will lead us to electoral success.
