The SDCDP Bylaws related to chartering and the endorsement rules can be found at www.sddemocrats.org/bylaws Article X and Article XIII. The SDCDP Policies on chartering and rechartering can be found at www.sddemocrats.org/policies Section X.
2018 Rechartering: A new Associate member form is only required as part of rechartering if:1) the club is also changing their Associate member to the Central Committee, or2) the club has changed their President and the current president has not designated an Associate other than themselves.
**Note to Young Democrats, your Associate Member must be 18 and a registered voter.
Club email addresses should be non-personal addresses. Gmail addresses are an option if the club does not have email or email forwarding with the club's website hosting (e.g, email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Club president's or designee’s name and phone number will be listed on the Club Directory.
The Director of Clubs, the Chair, and SDCDP staff will use the Clubs Council email list to make announcements and for Club Council correspondence.
The SDCDP requires a list of members (download Excel spreadsheet here: www.sddemocrats.org/clubstemplate). Registration and party affiliation are verified using the information you provide. For any club that wants to participate in CADEM pre-endorsement caucuses, CADEM requires a similar list of members but with additional information, submitted by July 15.
Please contact the office if you would like a copy of your previous list or help verifying party registration.
