Club Chartering – Nov 15th

After several rules changes earlier this year the Party is now back to (re-) chartering every 12 months and re-chartering is moved up a month to November 15th.

If your club paid $100 last year to charter for 24 months (at $50/year), then there is no fee to charter for 2020. New clubs that first chartered during 2019 will need to pay $48 for the year. Dues and signed forms are required to be submitted by November 15, 2019.

The earlier deadline is so that staff don’t have to work over the holiday break trying to get everything in order for the start of the year. For this reason we’re also asking clubs to provide a list of 20 ‘chartering members’ who agree they are not also ‘chartering’ members of another club. This will make it easier for staff to check unique member status for the purposes of appointing Associate Members.  

For the last several years clubs have been asked when their bylaws will be compliant with the mandated San Diego County Democratic Party club chartering requirements – that waiver period is over. If your club’s bylaws are not compliant, the club cannot be chartered. Clubs need to follow their own internal processes to amend their bylaws.
