    DAUK Election Meeting

    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.

    Due to the ongoing pandemic, the 2021 General Meeting of Democrats Abroad UK and elections will be held virtually via Zoom on Saturday, March 20th 2021 from 12 noon to 3pm.

    If you are considering nominating yourself or others, we encourage you to read the full description of the roles and responsibilities of the officers to be elected here.

    Nominees must be members of Democrats Abroad UK as of January 31st of this year and continue to be members up to and including the date of the General Meeting.

    If you would like to stand as a candidate, or to nominate someone else, please complete and submit the nomination form by the end of the day (i.e. 11.59 pm) on Saturday, February 20th 2021. Please be aware that if you use this form to nominate someone other than yourself, we will then contact that person to confirm they are happy to be nominated.

    You may also submit a personal statement for your candidacy through this form – the personal statements will be shared with all members to help inform their vote.

    If you have any questions about nominations or about the General Meeting, the Elections Committee will be happy to help, please e­mail elections@democratsabroad.org.uk

    We look forward to working with the whole of the membership towards a free, fair and constructive election allowing for the seamless transition to newly-elected leadership.

    Democratically yours,

    The Elections Committee:

    Sue Cameron, Karin Robinson, Stan Musgrave, Midge Purcell, Jackie Marcus
