🔵 Executive Board Vacancy Self-Nomination Rules:
We have a total of three vacancies on the Executive Board, to consider during our November Meeting:
- King County Democratic Central Committee (KCDCC) Alternate (1 vacancy)
Our remaining alternate is male identifying, so it would be great to elect an alternate that does not identify as male. However, this isn’t a requirement under KCDCC’s rules. NOTE: This is a PCO only vote. However, you do not have to be a PCO to be eligible for this position.
- Member-at-Large (2 vacancies)
There are two vacancies for our Member-at-Large positions on our Executive Board. PCOs and Members in good standing are eligible to vote for these positions.
** UPDATED RULES FOR SELF-NOMINATION: PCOs and Members in good standing interested in filling any of these vacancies must:
- Self-nominate by Saturday November 18, 2023 at 5pm by emailing [email protected], and CC’ing [email protected] and [email protected]
Use one of the following the Subject lines:
- EBoard Candidate for KCDCC Alternate
- EBoard Candidate for Member-at-Large
- Include your preferred pronouns
You may also provide a written statement of up to 500 words, with or without a headshot. If you would like to submit a written statement, please do so when you self-nominate.
