Did you know you can attend the State Central Committee meetings virtually?

YES! This is a great now option, and there are some things to know:

  • You can listen and vote, but you cannot debate on motions. The DPO has made the meeting more accessible by allowing delegates to to opt to attend virtually, but the complexities of managing debate pro and con lines means only in-person delegates can anticipate in debate.
  • If you wish to attend an SCC meeting virtually, you MUST tell the your SCC Delegation chair as soon as possible. The window to opt in for virtual will close the Monday before the SCC weekend.
  • If you get a virtual credential ..and then change your mind and want to be in person, you cannot change your virtual status after the Monday closing date. It is locked in.
  • If you choose to be virtual and then you cannot attend the SCC weekend, the WashCo Dems loose the delegation vote for that meeting (an alternate would not be promoted day of to replace a virtual delegate). When we have in-person no shows, we can promote an alternate who shows up day of. This is simply due to administration meant to ensure proper credentialing.

Be sure to stay in communication with your delegation chair at scc_chair@washcodems.org

Names are listed by the order of rank according to the number of votes attained at the 2022 Organization meeting. When a delegate looses their delegation seat (for any reason as outlined in our rules), the alternate with the most votes attained at the reorganization meeting will move into a delegate position.

As this will cause a vacancy in the alternate seat, a vote for a new alternate (of the same gender) will be held at Central Committee meetings. The new alternate will sit last in rank among alternates.
