Chair, Suisse Romande Chapter

I am originally from New Jersey, living abroad for nearly all of the last 23 years. I have called Switzerland home since 2004, when I joined DACH. I was DACH National Secretary from 2006-2009.  During my tenure, we more than doubled our membership, expanded the website, successfully pioneered internet voting at the Global Primary, and established local chapters. I also served as National Treasurer from 2013-2015, during which time we increased DACH funds year-on-year by 20 per cent.
Professionally, I am a conference specialist with rapidly growing experience in managing a wide variety of digital events. I live in Crassier (near Nyon) with my Dutch husband and our teenage daughter.
I see serving as the Geneva Chapter co-chair with Peter as an excellent opportunity to help chart the course that the Chapter could take in the coming years. I look forward to continuing the good work of our predecessors, developing membership, curating a varied program of fundraising and educational events, facilitating open conversations between local chapters in Switzerland and abroad, and helping our Geneva members make the most of this dynamic, though sometimes daunting, time.

    2023 Extraordinary General Meeting

    Democrats Abroad Switzerland was fortunate enough in the final global membership count this year to be awarded an additional Democratic Party Committee Abroad representative position. The DPCA representatives attend general meetings of the Party and represent the interests of Democrats living in Switzerland to the Democratic Party globally. While having an additional representative is wonderful news for our members, it also means that we need to elect that individual.

    We will be holding an Extraordinary General Meeting on April 13th. At this meeting, we will:

    • elect our new DPCA representative
    • elect alternate DPCA representatives
    • elect a new Vice Chair

    If you are interested in running for either DPCA representative or Vice Chair, please inform the Nominations Committee via email before the deadline of March 9th. Include your name, address, telephone number, email address, and a brief statement of intention to run.

    By March 19th we will distribute candidate names, short bios, and voting procedures to all members by email. You can follow this link to see excepts from the DACH Bylaws that describe the positions available.
