Because all SFDCCC-chartered democratic clubs have the opportunity to send delegates to the California Democratic Party’s (CADEM) pre-endorsement meeting. The SF District 11 Democratic Club has enough regular members to participate in any of the Democratic Party Pre-Endorsement Meetings. The CADEM requires all chartered clubs to include the following into their bylaws:
- A statement that defines: a member in good standing.
- A section that: explains how their club chooses their delegates to the CDP Pre-endorsement meetings. You can elect one delegate for every 20 members
- A statement stating that: their clubs will follow the CDP Code of Conduct
The Executive Board proposed the following additions to our bylaws:
- Article 1, Section 1(c): states that the Club will follow the CDP Code of Conduct
- Article 1, Section 3(f): defines “member in good standing”
- Article 6, Section 9: explains how the Club will participate in SFDCCC, CDP, and other pre-endorsement conferences.
The members unanimously voted to make these additions a part of the bylaws. A voting link was sent to every member attending the meeting.
