The Atlantic Provinces Chapter of Democrats Abroad Canada had their general meeting on Earth Day, April 22, 2017. We tried a “mixed” meeting with some folks attending in person, some joining us online via instant messaging and video chat, and some folks sending in e-mail information and ballots. We had a great meeting and are planning some interesting events for later this year.
Results of the Chapter’s elections were:
Chapter Chair – William E. (Bill) Curry
Chapter Vice-Chair – Ilonka Vernier Alexander
Chapter Treasurer – Michael A. Tavares
Chapter Secretary – Neil M. Higsen
Moved by Janet Miller, seconded by Peter Miller and made unanimous by roll call.
The Atlantic Provinces Chapter of Democrats Abroad Canada looks forward to encouraging US citizens living in the Atlantic region of Canada to become involved in the US political process, and is especially looking forward to working for Democrats in the 2018 mid-term elections.

Hello Americans in the Maritimes
Every American in the world, including those in Maritime Canada, has the right to vote in the 2020 U.S. elections. This time U.S. democracy itself may very well be at stake. Unless democracy triumphs and Trump loses it will not be good for the U.S. It will not be good for Canada and it will not be good for the world.
There are a few of us eager to reactivate the Atlantic Provinces chapter of Democrats Abroad Canada to prepare for the 2020 election, and to elect delegates backing presidential candidates to the Democratic Convention in Milwaukee. The chapter comprises New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland & Labrador with several hundred Democrats Abroad members spread throughout.
With technology, members throughout the Atlantic Provinces can take an active role in managing the chapter and to receive support in developing ideas for activities to connect with fellow Americans in your local area. We hope you can join us either in person, or online through UberConference.
Who: Democrats Abroad Atlantic Provinces
What: Formative meeting to reactivate the Atlantic Provinces Chapter
When: Thursday, August 22, 2019 7:00 PM Atlantic Time
