At our January 17 General Membership Meeting, we will be having Board elections and starting to set up working committees. The meeting will run from 7:00pm to 8:30pm in the OVA Offices, Suite B, 6637 Laurel Leaf Place. It will be preceded by registration and refreshments at 6:30pm. All offices are up for election including President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary. Additionally, we need help with planning events, outreach and communications (articles, eblasts and Facebook).
During 2018, the ODC together with other allies helped take control of Congress away from Donald Trump. But this year, both nationally and locally, we continue to face major issues and many of us hope that our Club can have a positive impact. Along with the formal Board, we plan to set up an Action Team to work on local issues members consider important such as affordable housing, climate change and protecting health care/social security. Your help on these committees can make a difference and we hope you will consider volunteering.
Val Henshaw of the Sonoma County Democratic Central Committee will be present to supervise the election. Tony Babb and Jane Rinaldi have formed a Nominating Committee and will help recruit candidates for the Board. Open nominations from the membership will also be held at the January 17th meeting. Any active member can run for the Board. We encourage all Democrats to attend and vote!
