On Tuesday, May 9, Metro Richmond Area Young Democrats will elect locality chairs for Hanover, Henrico, and Petersburg to serve the remaining executive board term, ending in January 2018.
The Henrico Caucus Chair position recently became vacant, and per our constitution we must hold a caucus to elect a new chair at our next scheduled meeting. No chair was elected to represent Petersburg or Hanover at our organizational meeting in January 2017. Since then, we have organized events in those areas and would like to elect chairs for those localities.
Locality chairs serve as liaisons between MRAYD and the local Democratic Committee and campaigns of their area; provide information to members on how to join the local Democratic Committee in their area, and coordinate campaign activity and recruitment in their area. Locality chairs are also voting members of MRAYD’s executive board which meets monthly on first Tuesdays.
MRAYD members living in Henrico, Petersburg, or Hanover, will be able to participate in their respective caucus elections.
If you are interested in serving as a chair for your locality, please fill out this form by Sunday, May 7 at 11:59pm, and plan to attend our next meeting on Tuesday, May 9, 6-8pm, at On the ROX (119 N 18th St, Richmond, VA 23223). If you have additional questions, please contact Alexsis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
