Several hundred members convened Sunday 19 March to elect a new slate of officers to lead DAUK. Those standing for the four officer positions addressed the group, followed by a vote via a show of hands. The Executive Committee and Voting Representatives to the Democratic Party Committee Abroad were elected via ballot. Others were elected to the Council by acclimation.

We may be an ocean away from the U.S.A, but there are still many ways we can get involved and make a political difference. DAUK invites you to join our new state committees project, which will focus on voter outreach and engagement on a state-by-state basis.
Space for our March 9 meeting for the first states, Virginia and New Jersey, is now full, but additional state committees will follow.
State committees will conduct research, manage voter outreach, plan events, and develop social media and communications plans. We are looking for leaders who want to make a difference and play a part in shaping the future of our nation. State committees are going to play a crucial role in getting out the vote in the midterm elections in 2018. Now is the time to get organized! If you would like to get involved, please email email@example.com.
Upcoming EventsJoin us as we officially begin planning our biggest event of the year, the DAUK Independence Day Picnic 2018! This year, we're starting things off a bit differently. This promises to be a fun evening where we will share ideas and look ahead to our summer celebration of our nation's birth. More details to come.

Join DAUK's Tax Committee for this special event to discuss Residency Based Taxation (RBT). DA and American Citizens Abroad (ACA) have been advocating a switch from Citizenship Based Taxation to RBT for American expats. Joe Smallhoover, Chair DA France and Member of DA Taxation Task Force will update us on DA's advocacy work to date and explain the hurdles and roadblocks DA have encountered. Mike Larsen, ACA, UK Chapter Chair will share information about the framework of the ACA RBT policy proposal. Finally, we will discuss what we as Democrats Abroad can do to give RBT the push it needs to make it a reality.
