Washington County Democrats: First Congressional District Organizational Meeting
Welcome to all new Delegates and Alternates elected to CD1CC and the SCC delegation in the First Congressional District.
The CD1CC Organizational Meeting will be on February 16, 2019 @ 1 pm at
Coyote’s Bar & Grill Banquet Room

The Organizational Meeting is where the attending credentialed members (elected at county reorg meetings in late 2018) of the CD1CC
- elect their officers,
- approve new members for CD1CC Standing Committees which are Open With Approval, and, in conjunction with the SCC Delegates,
- elect the DPO Standing Committees in accordance with the applicable section of the Bylaws, below.
Credentialing will begin at noon and the Organizational Meeting will begin at 1pm. The agenda is listed in the CD1CC Special Rules of Order. I will also follow up with a reminder email prior to the meeting.
Anyone wishing to run for an officer position or a DPO Standing Committee needs to contact the Nominating Committee Chair Jeremy Likens at your earliest convenience.
