Candidates' Forum


All voting members of the DPCA are invited to join this Candidates' Forum sponsored by DA-France, DAUK, and DA-Italy to meet the candidates for Global Chair and Vice Chair.  

We will be asking prepared questions about the issues that will affect Democrats Abroad for the next two years (and beyond).  Our questions will be clustered into three broad areas : DA Governance and Culture, Strategies to Prepare for the 2022 Elections, and Democratic Party Relations.  Candidates will have two minutes to respond to questions, and at the close of each cluster, will be given 90 seconds to summarize and/or respond to each other.

We also invite you to submit questions for consideration in any of these broad areas, which you should do no later than midnight (European time) on May 2, via this GOOGLE FORM.  A fourth cluster of questions (for example, DA Advocacy work) will be formed on the basis of questions submitted.


Because candidates will have already participated in several other fora (such as the one hosted by DA-Switzerland, HERE), we will forgo opening statements so that we can dive right into questions.  Please review candidates' statements HERE.  


The event will be held on ZOOM, and a link will be sent to you in the RSVP confirmation.


Please also have a look at the forum for Legal Counsel candidates, hosted by DA-Israel, available HERE

May 03, 2021 at 1pm - 4pm Eastern Time (US & Canada)
