The 2-year term of Democrats Abroad UK’s officers and representatives is coming to an end. Therefore, at the 2021 General Meeting on Saturday, March 20th, 2021 we will be electing a new set of officers, and we invite members to submit their nominations now.
New officers will be elected for each of the 4 Officer positions set out in the Bylaws (Chair Vice Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer) as well as DPCA Voting Representatives, non-Voting DPCA Representatives, the Executive Committee, and the Council. We are now accepting nominations of candidates for these elected positions – and we hope that you will consider standing for office as an important way to contribute to our work. We are especially eager to see a broad representation of people from a variety of ethnicities and backgrounds, as well as members who live in every part of the UK. We also aim for a balance in terms of gender.
You can submit your nominations here.
