Note that floor nominations will be accepted during the Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Sunday April 14, 2019 from 1-3 pm. Voting will occur first for the eleven members of the Leadership Board, and after they are confirmed, officers will be elected from those eleven. Thus, all voting will occur during the AGM for DA China members attending either in person or through WebEx. Please register for the meeting, and sign up to be a DA China member if you haven’t done so already! Stay tuned for more information about the election format.

We ask that in the weeks leading up to the election that conversations about the candidates remain respectful in the public spaces provided by DA China. We invite any DA member to submit further endorsements to the NEC (email any or all of us listed below) by April 11 for any of the listed candidates – we will compile and share these to DA a few days before the AGM.

We look forward to your participation – please come and vote, and help decide the future of Democrats Abroad in China!

All the best,
The Nominations and Elections Committee (NEC)
