On January 27th, the ODCCA Executive Committee held a zoom meeting to discuss several pending issues. To review the minutes from the meeting, please visit the Members Only page.
ODCCA discussed changing and reviewing our current C&B in order to bring them in line with our needs, including new provisions to enable ODCCA to donate funds to candidates. We felt a candidates screening committee should be created with guidelines for when and how any donations could be made. Several ODCCA Executive Committee members volunteered for the C&B committee (I would like to see a chair from the SE region so all regions are represented). The committee will start working on language soon; please send any suggestions to Committee Chair Brian Hester. Chairs wishing to serve on the C&B or the candidates screening committees, please contact me.
In other news to report, our long time ODCCA Secretary and County Chairwoman, Ann Reno, has found it difficult to continue as our secretary. Ann is a very active chair and serves on many boards and committees and, thus, has asked to step down from the ODCCA Secretary position. We all want to express our heartfelt thanks for Ann’s many years of dedicated service to ODCCA. Members who are interested in serving as our new ODCCA Secretary and member of our Executive Committee please reach out. We would like to have a candidate stand for election at our upcoming Winter Zoom Meeting.
Our Winter Meeting will be on Sunday, February 21, at 4:00pm via ZOOM. Please find the invitation and call in numbers below – NOT POSTED ON THE WEBSITE – PLEASE CONTACT AMY GRUBBE FOR LINK INFORMATION. I hope you all can attend. We have several new chairs and lots of exciting information to impart.
I have been meeting regularly with our new ODP Chair, Liz Walters. We have exchanged ideas and had several frank discussions on how we move Ohio forward. I have more information to share with you on our winter 2-21 call. Additionally, ODCCA officers will have a scheduled call with Chair Walters on the 3rd Tuesday of each month moving forward. ODCCA party chairs will have a scheduled call on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 5:30pm. Look for the invite from ODP soon.
Thank you and I hope to “see” you all on Sunday, February 21, at 4:00pm for our Winter ODCCA Meeting.
Stay safe. Be well and Go Dems!
Chair, Geauga Dems
