Key Information for the December Meeting
At the December meeting, we will elect all the Standing Committee Members, discuss the SCC schedule for 2019-2020 (see the proposed schedule in the packet), vote on the Presidential Primary or Caucus along with Delegation Selection plan procedures, and facilitate a Diversity and Inclusion training. In other words, a very packed agenda.
We know our SCC Members will be tired from the 2018 election season and that we are asking a lot to turn around for a packed meeting — however, as well know we have elections in May 2019 and need to decide on critical aspects for the 2020 cycle.
