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.
- Treasurer: Manages finances and creates reports for Chair and Executive Committee.
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 [firstname.lastname@example.org].
Additionally, DAAR will be appointing a Counsel position, and encourages interested members with a legal background to contact us at [email@example.com].
Candidate Statements and electronic ballots will both be emailed to all DAAR members on October 16th.
