January Reorganization Meeting

Our recent influx of more than 130 new PCPs at the December 20th meeting has necessitated the rescheduling of our reorganization meeting to a larger venue.  Fortunately for all of us, we were able, with the help of our District Leadership in HD 44, to find a space that is large enough and also includes an abundance of free parking as well as access to Trimet.

We will meet at the North Portland Fraternal Order of the Eagles at 7611 N. Exeter Ave., 97203 on Saturday, January 28th.  Credentialing will begin at 11 AM and will close at 1 PM.   Our meeting will take place from 1:00 PM to 4 PM.  

At the conclusion of our meeting to fill officer positions, we will elect Delegates and Alternates to our State Central Committee Delegation, and to our 1st, 3rd and 5th Congressional District Committees.  

Stay tuned for all the details, including information concerning the officer positions to be filled and the declared candidates for those positions.

We Have a Location!

We have been able to secure a venue for our December 15th meeting. We will meet at 7 PM at the Hollywood Senior Center located at 1820 NE 40th Ave. This will also be our venue should we need to postpone tomorrow’s meeting to the Tuesday, December 20th date.

Due to continued weather concerns, we ask that you watch for our emails should we have another postponement. If we do we will send out another notice as soon as is possible and will go to the back up date of next Tuesday as mentioned above.

Clarification of Previous Message

Due to the severe weather on December 8th, our meeting had to be postponed.  We will reschedule for Thursday, Dec 15th, location TBD, so please watch your email for further details.  

The clarification: in our rush to get the notices out, we included a statement regarding our potential PCP applicants that was not fully explained.  PCP applicants must be present to be appointed unless you have documented attendance at one of our meetings in the past six months.  In this instance June, July, August, September, October, or November of this year. 

Unfortunately, our procedures for having guests sign in are not catching everyone.  We have been working to improve these procedures. 

Meanwhile, if you believe you have met the requirement of having attended a meeting in the past six months, and you are not able to attend on the 15th, please email me at chair@multdems.org and include our 2nd Vice Chair at vicechair2@multdems.org so we can look at that for you.

At the December 15th meeting, there will be a motion from the floor to suspend this attendance rule, as our desire for inclusion and fairness in the face of an unavoidable natural event may take precedence over this attendance requirement.  However, this would require two-thirds majority vote.  This is a high bar that is difficult to meet. 

So the very best way to insure that you can become a PCP at the December 15th meeting is to be there for your appointment.

Thank you, and again, my apologies. I will let you know ASAP where that meeting will be held on December 15th.  Please watch your email.

Lorraine VanHoe, Chair
