Chapter Elections - Call for Candidacies!

Our actions happen thanks to the strong efforts of a vibrant team. With Democrats taking over the House of Representatives in 2019, we must keep the momentum of our voices being heard loud and clear.

Our work abroad has a big impact on US elections! And we can do more.

The time has come again for our own, Democrats Abroad France – Aix-Marseille Chapter’s Executive Committee elections.

We are officially calling for candidates for the following positions:

  • Chair
  • Vice-Chair
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Up to six members at large

Please take the time to consider the possibility of dedicating time to our Executive Committee for a two-year term. If you have questions about the roles and responsibilities of these positions, please respond to this email and we will get back to you.

All of us can do something no matter how big or small to support our party. Our volunteers each contribute what they can, and this is what makes our team so special. We hope that you’ll show your enthusiasm and support.

In order to successfully organize these elections, we are establishing a deadline for reception of candidacies. To have your name on the ballot, thank you for submitting the following before March 1st 2019:

  • your name
  • the position you wish to run for
  • a brief statement of your interest (150 words maximum) just expressing why you'd like to join the team!

Your candidacy submission can easily be done by sending it to our Election Officer:

Janice Nagourney: [email protected]

So please mark on your calendar the date our elections will formally be held: March 30th 2019. We will make an event of it with a film projection of the play, Ann – a portrait of Ann Richards, the legendary governor of Texas – in Aix-en-Provence. Click here for more information:


This will be a great opportunity to meet other members, as we are a diverse and talented community!

Voting will also be possible electronically, and by post.

We hope many of you will submit your candidacies for our new ExCom. More than ever, we need to act now to keep the momentum going! Joining the Aix-Marseille Chapter team is a rewarding way to do so.
