As a member of CCDS, you are part of the Northern California Annual Membership Meeting. According to our Bylaws (Bylaw 1. Section 2), “The annual membership meeting is the highest decision-making body: it elects officers and coordinating committee members, makes basic policy decisions, sets strategy for campaigns, and decides the direction for the organization. Anyone who is a member is entitled to attend and vote.”
The Annual Membership Meeting will convene on Sunday, September 9, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Lunch will be provided. It will take place at the Eric Quezada Center for Culture and Politics, 518 Valencia Street, between 16th and 17th Streets, near the 16th Street BART in San Francisco.
RESOLUTIONS and AMENDMENTS
You are invited to send resolutions on policy, strategy, tactics, work and composition of the chapters to be distributed to members prior to the Annual Membership Meeting.
Also, proposed amendments to our Northern California Constitution mailed to members one month in advance of the Annual Membership Meeting, only need a majority vote to pass instead of a three-fourths vote needed if presented from the floor without advance notice. The deadline for proposed resolutions and amendments to be received at the office is July 26.
The authors of the proposed resolutions and amendments will be invited to give a 10 minute presentation on a panel in a discussion session of the meeting.
At the Annual Membership Meeting, members will elect a Treasurer and 14 other members of the Northern California Coordinating Committee. You are urged to nominate yourself or nominate other members. Nominations may be made during the meeting.
We look forward to seeing you on September 9.
