Central Committee Meeting – February 9th

The Central Committee Meeting of the Multnomah County Democrats will take place on Thursday evening, February 9th 2017. Join us at Taborspace located at 5441 SE Belmont Street by entering the door facing 54th Street.

Doors and credentialing will begin at 5:45 pm. Agenda will be available at the door. We are splitting up the evening into two, one-hour sections: A Social Program beginning at 6:30 pm and the Business Meeting begins at 7:30 pm.

For the first hour starting at 6:30 pm we will focus on activism and organizing to work in our communities as Democrats.

We will hear from a few of our Multnomah County legislators, House District leaders and committee chairs. Then we will “break out” to let you talk with our guests and one another, to begin building working relationships with other Democrats, and to decide on outcomes you wish to focus on and the actions you plan to take to achieve these.

We have also invited representatives from community groups to join us and be available to talk with you about how you, as a Democrat, can ally with them.

You can also learn more about the recent resolutions like the one about to be proposed to the State Central Committee (.pdf below) and those adopted by the Democratic Party of Oregon supporting State inclusivity, backing anti-bullying legislation and in defense of transgender healthcare rights.

The second hour, starting at 7:30 pm, will be our business meeting to conduct the activities, affairs and administration of our county party. You can meet the newly elected officers and recently selected Standing Committee Chairs. This hour will conclude with a vote to appoint a new batch of Precinct Committee People. If you’re interested in becoming one as well, find out more on our site multdems.org.

See you Thursday.
