Metro DC DSA holds public, regularly-scheduled meetings of our members, typically once a month, but at least quarterly. Any member in good standing may introduce a proposal for the General Body’s consideration at such a meeting, in accordance with our chapter’s bylaws.
Any urgent matter that would regularly require a General Body Meeting vote may be voted on by the Steering Committee in the interim, and put to a ratification vote at the next voting meeting of the General Body. If there is at least seven days’ notice, the Steering Committee may instead call a Special Meeting of the full body to consider only the urgent matter at hand.
What’s on at the next GBM
February 10: “trans 101” chapter-wide cultural competency training with Reframe Health + Justice (90 minutes), 3rd reading and debate on resolutions introduced at January GBM (30 minutes). Voting (online via OpaVote) will take place over the 36-hour period immediately following this meeting. If you are a member in good standing and do not receive an email ballot, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
