Next Monthly General Meeting: Aug 9

Our next general monthly meeting will be next Thursday, August 9th, at 6:30pm in City Hall’s State of Maine Room. This is going to be an important one, as we need to elect a new Chair and Vice Chair!

So far, Sam Tracy has declared his candidacy for Chair, and Nicole Bissonnette will be running for Vice Chair.

We have a few other items on the agenda as well:

  • Welcome and Intros, Approve Minutes
  • Election of new Chair and Vice Chair
  • November Elections Update
  • Bylaws discussion (a new amendment has been proposed re: co-chairs)
  • Treasurer’s Report
  • Announcements
  • Adjourn

I look forward to seeing you all there. As always, look over the minutes online before the meeting so we can print out fewer copies and save a few trees.

if you’re on Facebook, please RSVP to the event (no worries if you’re not a Facebook person).

If you’re interested in running, we’d love to hear from you; just send an email to chair@portlanddems.org and secretary@portlanddems.org. Prior notice is not required, though, and nominations will be taken from the floor at the Aug 9 meeting. Be prepared to make a 3-5 minute speech about yourself and why you’re running.

 

May General Meeting

Spring is in the air, and once again, we have a packed agenda for our next General Meeting! Our tentative agenda currently includes:

  • Speeches from Candidates for Probate Judge w Q&A
  • Words from U.S. Senate Candidate Zak Ringlestein
  • Candidates Forum Planning
  • Vote to Approve Budget for Candidates Forum
  • Block Captain Program Training
  • State Convention Ride Sharing and Planning
  • Vote on Bylaws Amendments

Wowza! I look forward to seeing y’all there. Do me a favor and RSVP on the Facebook Event when you get a chance. Thanks!

One more thing – reviewing last month’s minutes online saves paper. Look them over before the meeting here, and that’ll allow me to print fewer copies. Thanks!
