In addition to our usual monthly business and social time, we will be reviewing and voting on any submitted constitutional amendments and resolutions for the state party.
Ahead of this year's Democratic CD1 Convention on April 29th and the State Convention June 9-11, you have the opportunity to submit proposed constitutional amendments and resolutions for the DPW. More info to come on those. If you are interested in doing so, please submit them to Karen Erb (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than next Sunday (February 26th) so that we can send them out to members ahead of our March 2nd General Membership Meeting.
Information for Submitting a Resolution or Constitution Amendment
- WisDems Resolutions
In order to pass a resolution, a draft resolution must be passed by county party
membership, and no more than 10 passed resolutions may be sent by the county to
the Congressional District chair, no less than ten days before the Congressional
District Convention. CD Convention delegates will then consider the drafts, and may
forward no more than 10 resolutions to the WisDems Platform & Resolutions
Committee via state headquarters. If passed & forwarded by the CD, the P&R
Committee will review the submitted resolutions & send them to the State Convention
floor for delegates to accept or reject.
2. WisDems Constitution Amendments
Proposals for amending the constitution must be submitted in writing to the Constitution
& Bylaws Committee via state headquarters by any county party at least 90 days before
the state convention (March 12th). Each proposed amendment, accompanied by the
recommendations of the C&B committee, will then be disseminated in writing to all
members of the state administrative committee and the chairpersons of each county
party at least 30 days before the convention (May 11th). The amendments will then be
presented to delegates for adoption or rejection on the State Convention floor.
