Hello my friends and fellow Democrats,
Hello fellow Democrats! Can you believe 2023 is almost over? This will be our last Central Committee meeting of the year. As you may recall, we normally meet a week early in November due to Thanksgiving.
We will be meeting online on zoom on November 15th.
We have a light agenda but we will be reviewing a motion with a recommendation of do pass that will be presented by the Policy and Resolutions committee. Please refer to our agenda to see the motion.
Also, one more friendly reminder that just after our CC meeting is the Q4 SCC weekend that’s happening here in Washington County on the 18th and 19th. Everyone is welcome to attend and check it out. Click here for more details.
Thank you and I look forward to seeing you at the Central Committee meeting online!

What to expect for online credentialing for virtual meetings
When you log in to the Zoom meeting, you will be held in a Zoom “waiting room” until a credentialing volunteer admits you to the meeting. Once in the room, if we are able to tell that you are a PCP by name or by visually recognizing you on video, we will consider you credentialed and no further action will be required. If we cannot easily recognize you by face or name and match you with our PCP list, we will interact with you to verify your identity before you are considered credentialed to vote in the meeting. Guests will also be verified in this way but will be labeled with “ZZZ-” in front of their names to help us easily tell which attendees may speak and vote.
Zoom can be used on a computer and by phone, but it is easier to use by computer. We advise doing your best to attend via a laptop or desktop. You can also join using the link with your cellphone, but the screen will be more condensed. Those without a computer can also attend by calling the number listed above, and typing in the Meeting ID.
NOTE: Zoom via the phone has more limitations. You will be limited to:
- Mute/Unmute = *6
- Raising and lowering your hand = *9
Please reach out to Martita Meier, our chair if you have any questions:
