    Rescheduled Call to Meeting – February 27, 2024

    Hello 46th District Democrats --

    I regret to inform you that we need to reschedule this month’s Regular Membership Meeting, due to an issue with the Call to Meeting email, that was sent out on Saturday, February 10. We’ve discovered that the email did not get sent to all members, as required by our Bylaws, Section 4.8.

    The short version:
    We are rescheduling the February Regular Membership Meeting for Tuesday, February 27, 2024; still at 7pm, and still on Zoom. Please register here. If you have previously registered for the February meeting, you do not need to register again. Your registration has been moved to the rescheduled meeting date and the link in your confirmation email for the Feb. 20 meeting will still work for the Feb. 27 meeting.

    The long version:
    We use a system called NationBuilder to manage our membership lists, as well as our website and email lists. A few months ago, in an effort to reach a broader audience, we began sending our emails to a list that included all email addresses in our system (instead of only sending our emails to our current members). Again, we did this to reach a broader audience, but did not realize that the new list was not automatically updating to include new members, as they joined our organization. This means that a number of new members were not sent proper notice for the November Regular Membership Meeting (7 members affected), the January Regular Membership Meeting (13 members affected), and for this month’s February Regular Membership Meeting (117 members affected). To address this, we are rescheduling the February Regular Membership Meeting for Tuesday, February 27, 2024.

    We are incredibly sorry for the oversight, and are taking steps to make sure it does not happen again.

    The above being said ...

     

    This is your official CALL TO MEETING for the February 27, 2024 46th District Democrats Regular Membership Meeting, on Zoom.
