    Run for something! Learn about DA Barcelona offices & elections

    On May 15, 2021, our chapter will hold its bi-annual elections as part of its Annual General Meeting. The chapter has been doing great work in the crucial 2020 pre- and post-presidential election period. It’s important to keep this momentum going and gear up for the equally crucial midterms in 2022, as well as to stay on top of the multiple voting-rights challenges that have the potential to affect our ability to vote from abroad, among other vital issues.

    We urge you to participate as a voter. And, if you would like to become even more active in the chapter, one good way is to run for office, by nominating yourself, or to nominate someone you think would be a good fit in one of the roles.

    Offices: Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary.

    Officers serve a two-year term and can hold the same office for a maximum of two consecutive terms.

    The nomination form can be found hereDeadline for submitting nominations in advance: April 28 at 10:00 pm

    Not sure what's involved and if it's for you? There will be an orientation Zoom meeting on Tuesday, April 13. Past and current officeholders will be on hand to provide more information and answer questions about what the different roles involve in terms of responsibilities, possibilities and time commitments.

    Barceloneta beach in Barcelona, Spain

    Beach cleanup and picnic + get to know the newly elected DAS chair

    In observance of Earth Day, we will meet at the Barceloneta beach to pick up trash and leave our beautiful seaside city a bit spiffier. Be sure to wear your DA or VFA sportswear, if you have any. After a couple of hours of cleanup, we will gather at a safe distance to enjoy a picnic lunch. Our special guest will be Daniel James, newly elected Chair of DA Spain and eco-warrier. 

    Bring your own gloves and a picnic lunch - we will supply the trash bags. Gathering point is on the Barceloneta beach in front of the Opium restaurant, on the beach side. 

    Given that restrictions on gatherings are in flux, please keep an eye on this page, where we will post any updates to the plan.
