DA Germany 2023 Chapter Elections
DA Germany holds elections for new officers in the first quarter of every odd-number year. This includes positions at the local chapter level and the Germany national level.
All local chapter elections are held before the national elections.
Below, you will find an overview of the chapter elections.
The election rules are defined in the DA Germany Bylaws and the DA Germany Chapter Election Rules. Chapter-level elections are facilitated by a neutral, five-member Chapter Elections and Nominations Committee (CNEC). No members of the CNEC are seeking chapter-level office themselves.
Chapters may opt to elect only a Chapter Chair and Chapter Vice Chair. However, it is strongly encouraged that, in addition to these two positions, for which gender balance rules shall apply, Chapters elect additional members to their Chapter Board. The additional positions on the Chapter Board may include Chapter Treasurer, Chapter Secretary, Chapter GOTV Coordinator, and any other positions deemed necessary for the running of the Chapter.

Should a position on the Chapter Board be advertised, but not filled during the Chapter elections, the Chapter Chair can fill such vacancy at a later date according to the rules set out in DAG Bylaws Section 6.4.
