    Queensland Annual General Meeting

    Please RSVP now [link] for the Democrats Abroad Australia Queensland Annual General Meeting at 10AM on Saturday May 29th, at an outdoor Brisbane location to be confirmed.
     

    At this time we would also like to invite candidate officers for the Queensland chapter who will be elected by majority vote at the AGM:

    Chapter Chairperson - To serve as the Queensland representative to the Democrats Abroad Australia executive committee, and to ensure our chapter remains in compliance with the national bylaws. Other supporting roles may include:

    • Chapter Vice Chairperson  
    • Chapter Secretary
    • Chapter Treasurer 
    The Queensland Chair further sets the agenda for the chapter, including planning and executing member events, and coordinates with the Democrats Abroad Australia leadership to support Democratic Party Committee Abroad (DPCA) initiatives in Australia. In a political climate where every overseas vote counts, this is an important leadership position for the future of the Democratic Party and the US as we fight to keep hold of divided Congress in the midterm elections. 

    If you would like to nominate, please email your interest to 
    [email protected].


    We’ll confirm the venue and final details of our AGM soon. Please save the date, Saturday 29 May, for the AGM and let us know if you are interested in serving in a leadership role!
