Platform Convention

Hello Democrats,

 

After careful consideration of the best public health guidance and much consultation, the DPO Admin Committee has made the difficult decision to move our 2021 Platform Convention online for the weekend of December 10-12th, and to cancel all in-person Convention plans. Our 4th Quarter SCC meeting will also be moved online as a virtual meeting due to these emergency situations. 

 

While we believe and hope that it will soon be safe to gather in person, COVID-19 is still being widely spread through community transmission, even to some folks that are fully vaccinated. This means that it is not yet safe for all of our members to gather together in person. We encourage you all to continue to stay safe and protect your community! 

 

As you know, our staff have been hard at work preparing for any eventuality with this Convention, and they will have more information in the days ahead about how the Virtual Convention will proceed. This may also include some schedule adjustments during the weekend to accommodate technology.

 

This year’s convention will look different, but we are hopeful that all of our participants will still be able to tune in and participate to make this the strongest DPO Platform yet! I ask for everyone’s patience in the coming days as we work on the logistics for this event. We will also hold numerous trainings prior to the convention to make sure everyone is prepared to fully participate.

If you have been appointed by your county or caucus as a delegate or alternate and have not yet registered, you will receive a new registration link on Monday with details on how to register. 

 

For folks who have already registered, you will receive an email shortly about how to process a refund for your registration.

 

As a note, while we are moving our convention online, and are therefore removing registration fees, there are still costs associated with putting this convention on. Additionally, we’ll be unable to host the Nan Honeyman fundraising Dinner as part of Convention weekendSo after you register, you’ll receive a link asking you to chip in to help offset these costs, and if you are  able to help out it would be greatly appreciated. 

 

Onward,

 

KC Hanson
