SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Change in leadership and call for new Vice-Chair

Democrats Abroad Spain is undergoing a change in leadership. After dedicating substantial time, energy and leadership to our organization, Daniel James has reluctantly made the difficult decision of resigning as Country Committee Chair in order to focus on urgent family health issues. DA Spain thanks Daniel for his extraordinary dedication and immense contributions to our democratic mission. Under our bylaws, former Vice-Chair Kathryn Tullos has succeeded Daniel James as Chair. She is fortunate to be serving alongside an incredibly talented and dedicated Executive Committee.

The search is now on for a new Vice-Chair. Under our bylaws, in order to maintain gender parity, the new Vice-Chair must identify as male, nonbinary, intersex, or some other non-female designation because our Chair identifies as female. Candidates for the position must be members of DA Spain. The Chair appoints the new Vice-Chair, with the advice and consent of the Country Committee, at the upcoming Executive Committee meeting to be held on August 12. The newly-appointed Vice-Chair will serve out the remainder of this term (through early 2023). If you have an interest in this position or would like to nominate a candidate, please email [email protected].
