Democrats Abroad – Lyon, the newest chapter of Democrats Abroad France, is up and running. We have an active, engaged and growing group of Democrats in the greater Lyon area. Having established the chapter in March of 2017, we now have over 100 members. More are joining as the word gets out!
Our board is comprised of a Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer, Secretary and two Members-at-Large. Currently, we are seeking candidates for Secretary and Member-at-Large to join our team. As we grow, we need more of our members to be actively involved in helping to manage our chapter. We propose activities on a regular basis that are aimed at both resisting the Trump agenda and promoting progressive values. We are interested in organizing a variety of events including Apéro Politicos, participation in the March for Science, conferences and Get Out The Vote (GOTV) events like our postcard parties. There is much more to come…
The responsibilities of the Secretary are to participate in board meetings, take notes and send out minutes to the board. Members-at-Large responsibilities are to participate in board meetings and support the other officers in planning and attending events. There is also scope for a Member-at-Large to define their roll or special area of interest. Our board meetings are held around every six weeks with the exact date determined by members’ availability.
We are planning to hold an election at our July 8th BBQ so if you are interested in joining our DALyon team as Secretary or Member-at-Large please contact Joan Skelton Smith (DALyon Chair) at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
