Volunteer, Bangkok Thailand

In today's political climate, volunteering to promote social justice helps me sleep at night. Through DA I can encourage discourse on the ideas and issues  that an informed citizenry should be discussing to our members while offering opportunities for activism.

    New Leaders Elected at Annual General Meeting

    This June, members and leadership from around the country gathered in Bangkok for the Annual General Meeting (AGM) to elect the Executive Committee for Democrats Abroad Thailand. The AGM is always a great opportunity for active members from around the country to meet face to face to discuss strategy and re-energize for the year. Heartfelt farewells and thank yous went out to Phil Robertson, the outgoing Chair for a job well done, and those present welcomed Paul Risley into the position. Paul is a long time member of DAT and has served in various roles in the organization over the years. He will be supported by 3 Vice Chairs: Gary Suwannarat, Rick Graves and Russel Berman.

    Newly elected executive committee members for 2019/ 2020:

    Paul Risley, Meghan Driscoll and Rosalia Gitau


  • Democrats in Bangkok Get Out the Vote at the Annual Independance Day Picnic

    +

    Democrats Abroad volunteers were out in force at the annual American Chamber of Commerce Independence Day picnic.  

    A highly anticipated event within the American expat community in Bangkok, this year's attendance was as big as ever with over 2,000  showing up for music, games and good food.    The computers were humming at the DA table with Americans requesting absentee ballots.  Printers were available so that everyone could print and sign their requests, place it in an addressed envelope and send it to the Embassy for mailing.   Old friends joined the effort and many new faces came by to see how they could get involved in making the blue wave happen here in Thailand.
