POST BELOW IS EDITED FROM E-MAIL DATED 11.21.2021
FROM ODCCA PRESIDENT JANET CARSON
November 21, 2021
Proposed changes to the ODCCA C&B as presented to the ODCCA Officers along with the 11-16-2021 and 11-20-2021 C&B Committee minutes were e-mailed to all county chairs. Please review changes and send any thoughts to C&B Chair Russ Wheeler and/or me. We’re hoping to approve these changes on our next ZOOM meeting, set for Sunday, December 5 at 7:30pm. Please see ZOOM invitation below.
In addition to the C&B proposed changes, nominations will be accepted to replace former first VP, Brandon Wobler/Paulding County. Brandon has resigned as his county party chair and, thus, has resigned as ODCCA first VP. Miami County Chair Russ Wheeler has indicated his interest in stepping up to fulfill the remainder of Brandon’s term. Sergeant at Arms Bill Bailey/Wayne County Chair, has indicated his interest in completing Russ’s term as a VP. Ray Lembke/Clermont County Chair has indicated he will step into the Sergeant at Arms position if Bill is elected as a VP. If any other Chair is interested in any ODCCA officer position, please contact us asap! We are still in need of a Secretary. Anyone interested, please contact any ODCCA officer prior to the 12-5-2021 meeting.
ODCCA will also hold its required semi-annual meeting during the OAEO Winter Conference in Columbus, Jan. 11-14, 2022 at the Hilton Hotel, 401 N. High Street, Downtown Columbus, Ohio. Please save the date for our annual meeting and BOE reception for Wednesday night, January 12th. I’d welcome a few chairs stepping up to assist in planning this event. Thoughts on the summer event with ODP and ODCCA at the ODP HQ, 340 East Fulton Street, Columbus, are appreciated. (NOTE: ODP will still be at current HQ in January 2022.) I’m also currently working with ODP Chair Walters on restarting the Chairs Summit and training programs. Information will be given on our next ODP/ODCCA Chairs call on Wednesday, December 15 – so please save the 2 call times – 12:30pm and 5:30pm – on your 2021 calendar.
Treasurer Grubbe has sent ODCCA Association dues invoices. Please make sure your invoice is paid to vote on 12-5 C&B changes and at the 1-12, 2022 Annual meeting.
ODP has also indicated to me that very few County Parties have paid the very reduced assessments and are urging Chairs to make these payments before year’s end. Please contact Stella Shaw at ODP if you need an invoice or amount due. There will not be an in-person ODP fundraising event before year’s end to offset the assessment. So please remit asap. Thank you!
Hope your Thanksgiving holiday is delicious and everyone stays healthy and inspired. Thank you for all you do to elect Democrats and support ODCCA. See you on Sunday Dec. 5 at 7:30pm.
