Per the current DAJ Bylaws, revisions to DAJ Bylaws require that the Executive Committee provide a three week period for the membership to review the proposed changes, provide feedback, ask questions and engage in dialogue with the Executive Committee regarding these proposed changes. Following the three weeks, a final version will be prepared along with a ballot for approval or disapproval of the changes. Those documents will be sent out two weeks prior to the General Meeting, which is currently scheduled for June 9, 2019.

     This initial three week period begins on April 29, 2019, and ends on May 20, 2019. The final version and ballot will be sent out to the membership by May 26, 2019.

You may contact me at pashumaker@gmail.com with questions and comments.

     The documents attached are the draft changes in the Bylaws, a document explaining the rationale for the changes, and the current Democrats Abroad Country Committee Election Procedures (DA-CCEP March 2019). They can be viewed at the links below.
