The two-year terms of Democrats Abroad UK’s officers and representatives is coming to an end. Therefore, at the 2021 Democrats Abroad United Kingdom General Meeting on Saturday, March 20th, 2021 we will be electing a new set of officers, and we invite members to submit their nominations now.
New officers will be elected for each of the four DAUK Officer positions set out in the Bylaws — Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer — as well as Democratic Party Committee Abroad (DPCA) Voting Representatives, non-Voting DPCA Representatives, the DAUK Executive Committee, and the DAUK Council. We are now accepting nominations of candidates for these elected positions, and we hope that you will consider standing for office as an important way to contribute to our work. We are especially eager to see a broad representation of people from a variety of ethnicities and backgrounds, as well as members who live in every part of the UK. We also aim for a balance in terms of gender.
