Election Information Meeting Feb. 12; DAPT Elections to be held March 23, 7 pm

Our Democrats Abroad Portugal Annual General Meeting and Officer Elections will be held on March 22, 2023, at 7 pm. 

As previously announced, we are kicking off the 2023 DAPT leadership elections process. Our leadership team is an engaged, dynamic, fun group who coordinates the many volunteers who help register voters, ensure Americans in Portugal vote in the US, and organize events. 

Interested in learning more about leading DAPT? Join us for a Sunday morning chat (bring your cup of coffee or tea!). The DAPT Nominations and Elections Committee (NEC) will be hosting an online Information Session on February 12 at 11:00 am WET, so you can ask questions about becoming a candidate, nominating a member, and voting. 


In this Democrats Abroad Portugal leadership election, our members will elect multiple positions, including: Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Counsel, several At-Large Executive Committee Members, 1 DPCA Voting Representative, and 1 Alternate DPCA Voting Representative.
