the June Council of Clubs meeting
Saturday, June 17th at 10AM
IBEW Local 465, 7444 Trade St, CA 92121 (map)
We hope everyone enjoyed the Convention in Sacramento last month and congratulations to Mary Latibashvili @mlatibash and the UCSD College Democrats for their Volunteer of the Year Award!
Now we’re back to work preparing our Rosters for our CDP Regional Directors, and planning on how to manage Endorsements.
We’re delighted to welcome Craig Roberts, Region 20 Director, to explain how to complete our membership rosters for the CDP. These are due to Craig (and Deborah Cunningham-Skurnik and Noberto Gonzalez) by July 15th, and list our members as of July 1.
Craig will also share with us best practices for running endorsement processes. As a former President of the San Diego County Democrats for Equality and longtime Democratic Party member Craig has seen it all, and can help new clubs and new officers avoid some of the more common pitfalls.
As July’s Council of Clubs meeting falls on Pride weekend we moved up Craig’s presentation, so we’ll also be celebrating Linda Ronstadt’s birthday a month early.
All club Presidents are encouraged to invite their membership chairs, treasurers, and other E-board members, as well as new clubmembers who want to share and learn about building Democratic clubs to change our county.
We look forward to seeing you all at our June meeting.
