From the Chair
Short term and long term news this month! In the “now” category are the coming Precinct Committee Person (PCP) training sessions and the County Meeting September 6th.
All of us need to be reminded of OUR precinct committee person’s responsibilities. There are two opportunities for you to sit in on a training session covering those responsibilities - choose either date but be sure to attend. 6-7 pm prior to the County Meeting either September 6th or October 18th. This applies to district leaders and officers as well - they need to know what to expect from precinct people and of course they are also precinct committee people themselves.
The Sept 6th County Meeting agenda includes meeting judicial and local candidates, discussing proposed by-law changes, catching up with committee reports, and importantly getting feedback from the Task Forces set up after our Leadership Summit.
The July 15th Leadership Summit had us looking backward at what we did well, looking inward, and looking forward. Out of that exercise cameTask Forces covering PRIORITY GOALS for LCDC in areas of Resources, Candidates, Committee, Representation, and Platform. Those task forces added members after a discussion at an August committee meeting. Now all four are moving ahead to answer questions about goals in those five areas, what actions we can take to reach them, when should those actions start/end, who should be responsible, and importantly, how will we know we’ve achieved the goals? All this is focused on building our party for the future.
Note: After the September 6th County Meeting there will be a brief meeting of the Chair, Vice Chairs, Secretary and Treasurer to sign and notarize candidate nomination forms for the two additional ELCO ballot positions created by late resignations.
