New officers: L to R: Treasurer: Joshua Van der Ploeg, Secretary: Tasia Campbell, Chair: Inge Kjemtrup, Vice Chair: Travis Mooney
Several hundred members convened Sunday 19 March to elect a new slate of officers to lead DAUK. Those standing for the four officer positions addressed the group, followed by a vote via a show of hands. The Executive Committee and Voting Representatives to the Democratic Party Committee Abroad were elected via ballot. Others were elected to the Council by acclimation.

We may be an ocean away from the U.S.A, but there are still many ways we can get involved and make a political difference. DAUK invites you to join our new state committees project, which will focus on voter outreach and engagement on a state-by-state basis.
Space for our March 9 meeting for the first states, Virginia and New Jersey, is now full, but additional state committees will follow.
State committees will conduct research, manage voter outreach, plan events, and develop social media and communications plans. We are looking for leaders who want to make a difference and play a part in shaping the future of our nation. State committees are going to play a crucial role in getting out the vote in the midterm elections in 2018. Now is the time to get organized! If you would like to get involved, please email email@example.com.
Join us for networking and drinks!
Spring is just around the corner – come celebrate with fellow Young Democrats! Join us for happy hour drinks and a chance to network and talk politics with fellow Americans living abroad.
