Endorsement Rules Task Force for 2021

You’re invited to participate in the 46th District Democrats’ 2021 Endorsement Rules Task Force.

Task Force meetings are open to all interested members and PCOs of the 46th District Democrats.

Two initial Task Force meetings will be held on: Saturday, November 14 (10am – noon), and Monday, November 16 (7pm – 9pm)

Both initial meetings will have identical agendas and formats. You may attend just one November meeting, or both.  Zoom links for both below.

The purpose of the 2021 Endorsement Rules Task Force is to consider potential changes to the 2021 Endorsement Rules and process through an organized and open discussion forum that allows for thorough consideration of improvements and alternative approaches prior to the District membership’s vote on proposed rules in February 2021. The Task Force will advise the Rules Committee on Endorsement Rules and process that is fair, transparent, equitable, and effective.

Each initial meeting will focus on shared learning about current Endorsement Rules practices and rationales through a brief presentation with discussion. We will then facilitate a member discussion to (1) develop a list of questions to be answered, (2) develop a list of issues or Rules changes that the Task Force will strive to address, and (3) discuss the Task Force’s goals and process. Debate or refusal of ideas will be discouraged at the initial meetings, rather members will be encouraged to ask questions, identify concerns, and propose issues for further discussion.
