Next Meeting—Committee Reorganization

December 9, at 10 a.m.

Regular Monthly Meeting to Follow

Don’t miss our reorganization meeting on Saturday, December 9 at 10 a.m. at Ashland Coffee & Tea, 100 N. Railroad Avenue. This is the biennial reorganization caucus, required by the State Democratic Party. The purpose of the caucus is to re-elect members of the HDC for 2018-19 term. Doors open at 9:30 a.m. and close at 10 a.m. (Only those in line by 10 a.m. will be allowed to enter the Caucus.) Any Hanover Democrat wishing to participate in the Caucus and/or be a candidate for election to the Committee must complete a Caucus Participation/Membership form and mail that form to HDC, P.O. Box 22, Ashland, VA 23005 or fill out a form the day of the caucus. (If you are already a member of the HDC, you have received the membership form in the mail.)  Immediately following the Caucus, a regular meeting of the newly reorganized Hanover County Democratic Committee will be held at which time the election of officers and approval of the By-Laws will take place. Nominations for officers will be accepted from the floor.

The Caucus Participation/Membership forms include an affirmation that the participant is a Democrat, does not intend to support any candidate who is opposed to a Democratic nominee, believes in the principles of the Democratic Party, and is a registered voter in Hanover County. Dues of $30.00 are assessed along with the Membership Form.  There is no assessment for participation in the Caucus. (Dues will be excused for reasons of financial hardship.)
