HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2019 is nearly upon us and that means so is our Annual meeting during the Winter BoE Conference in Columbus. As previously indicated, our meeting will be on Wednesday, January 9th at the Hilton Columbus Downtown, Pierce room A & B.
ODCCA meeting will begin promptly at 5:45pm and end by 7:00pm. We have many important items to discuss including Bylaws, election of officers and executive committee and updates on important issues for 2019. Grace Cherrington/Licking County is heading the nomination committee so if you’re interested in running for an office, please contact her. We have some availability for the executive committee (regional liaisons) or VP positions. So please also email Grace if that’s of interest to you. Several chairs have suggested changes to the Bylaws. Please look for an email with the proposed changes. We’ll also have copies at the meeting for your review and consideration. If you have any suggested changes, please forward asap as we need to send out prior to the meeting.
I’ve been working with ODP for several months regarding the board of elections reception and we think the details are nearly set. Room location is still being decided, but the event will be before our ODCCA meeting, beginning at 4:30pm and ending at 5:30pm. All Democratic board members and staff are invited to attend. Details will be sent after the 1st of the New Year by ODP and included with conference packets and information from OAEO.
Please remember to RSVP for the reception and meeting and to bring or pay your dues prior to votes for officers and agenda items. $50 dues per county. Amy will send a reminder email with dues updates before the conference.
Wishing all a New Year filled with happy times, good health and hope for a better world. See you in Columbus on 1-9-19.
Chair, Geauga Dems
