Oct 1 – Chair and Secretary Elections

Meeting agenda  (This is the original Sept 17 meeting agenda. Oct. 1 meeting agenda will be essentially the same except no guest speaker and there will be no Oct. 8 meeting as listed at the bottom)

We will elect a new Chair and Secretary at our next meeting on October 1, 2018 at 7:30 pm in the Administrative Board Room, Western Government Center, 4301 E Parham Rd., 23228. You must be a member in good standing as of our August meeting in order to vote. This means you need to have completed a membership application, paid $30 dues for 2018 or obtained a waiver, be a registered voter in Henrico, and have been voted in as a member. Voting will take place at 8:25 pm. A quorum of members must be present, so all members are encouraged to attend. Nominations for leadership positions will be taken from the floor.

At our August meeting, Lizzie Drucker-Basch and Lisa Speller-Davis announced their intent to run for Chair. Carrie Pruett announced her intent to run for Secretary. Descriptions of these positions are as follows:

Chair – undertakes responsibilities identified in the Party Plan, presides at Committee meetings, oversees the Candidate and Nominations committee,  oversees the work of the other officers, and conducts the necessary procedures for nominating Democratic candidates.

Secretary – records the minutes of all proceedings of the Committee and the Executive Committee, makes minutes of previous meetings available to members, serves as historian, handles correspondence on behalf of the Committee and maintains the membership role and attendance data.
