DA Madrid elections were held a few weeks ago. Maggie Zelonis (vice-chair) and Carmen Milagros Higgins (treasurer) were elected to join Samuel Mattern (chair) and Revé Fisher (secretary) as the 2021–23 DA Madrid executive committee. We'd like to thank the elections committee - Khephra White, Diane Tillman, and Eric Stevenson - for helping us put the elections together and hold a successful annual general meeting!
On May 27th, we held our first in-person event of the year. A few of us gathered near the Puerta del Ángel Caído (gate from Cuesta de Moyano) in Retiro Park to catch up on life, take advantage of the nice weather, and enjoy some snacks and drinks.
Note: This location is different from our regular Retiro meeting spot and much more convenient. It is easier to get to, close to the street, around the corner from the Atocha Renfe metro, right across from a BiciMad station, with plenty of shade, and next to an ice cream kiosk. Moving forward, all Retiro events will be held here unless we tell you otherwise. We'll remind you in future event postings.
While we love the Retiro, we are on the lookout for a new indoor meeting spot! If you have any leads or suggestions, let us know at.
