Welcome to Democrats Abroad Argentina!

Democrats Abroad Argentina (DAAR) is a growing network of Americans living in Buenos Aires and beyond who are firmly dedicated to voting – and getting out the vote – in our beloved United States. We organize monthly meetings to catch up with one another, keep up on the changing political landscape in the US, and participate actively in each and every electoral cycle. We are the official country committee for US Democrats living here and invite all Americans living in Argentina to get involved.

Watch this space for upcoming announcements of events and meetings – including upcoming Debate Watch and Election Night Parties – and please don't hesitate to contact us at info-argentina@democratsabroad.org with any inquiries or proposals aimed at further activating our shared efforts.

There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than
the long-range risks of comfortable inaction.”
- John F. Kennedy

    Save the Date and Participate! Upcoming Elections for the DAAR Executive Committee

    The Nominations and Elections Committee (NEC) is pleased to announce:
    2019 Elections for the Democrats Abroad Argentina (DAAR) Executive Committee to be held October 30th!

    NOW ACCEPTING NOMINATIONS FOR THE DAAR EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE

    Join with like-minded Democrats and help lead Democrats Abroad Argentina throughout 2019 to 2121. Nominations are being accepted for the following positions of the DAAR Executive Committee:

    • Chair: Acts, as chief executive officer, establish meeting agendas, carries overall responsibility for programs, policies, activities, and compliance.
    • Vice-Chair: Presides in the absence of the Chair and accepts other agreed-upon duties assigned by the Chair. (Must be of different gender identity from the Chair.)
    • Secretary: Maintains member lists, meeting minutes, and files.

    While the Nominations and Elections Committee (NEC) has candidates for the above positions, we believe a wide and diverse candidate pool makes our organization strong and would love for anyone interested to run or nominate a qualified DAAR member to do so.

    Nominees and self-nominees must be current members of Democrats Abroad and consider Argentina as their principal country of residence. To add yourself or someone else as nominee for a position above, send name, contact information, and short bio/qualifications by October 13 to the NEC Chair, Marcela Brusa, at [daarnec@gmail.com].
