Next Statewide Organizational Meeting – December 14

The next statewide organizational meeting will be held on Tuesday, December 14th from 7-9pm at the RI Democratic Party HQ, 151 Broadway, Suite 310 in Providence.

The agenda for the meeting will be to discuss our 2011 strategy. All members are encouraged to attend to discuss how we should proceed in the coming months with a new Governor, several new Progressive members of the General Assembly, a new Congressman, and a new Progressive Mayor of Providence.

We have a great many opportunities to advance a progressive agenda in the state and beyond and we will work diligently in 2011 to actualize our agenda.  But we NEED YOUR HELP!

If you can attend the meeting, RSVP here.

There have been several changes in leadership this year, and the transition team is hoping to get more people involved in the group, planning and organizing events and actions.  With this in mind, the RIPDA will be holding elections for various leadership positions at our January meeting.

The following positions will be up for election:

  • State Coordinator

  • Liaison for Rep. Langevin
  • Liaison for General Assembly
  • Anti-War / Peace Organizer

  • Clean Elections Organizer
  • Global Warming Organizer

The responsibilities for each of these positions will be better identified in the coming weeks and will be sent out shortly and listed on our website.  If you are interested in being a candidate for any of these positions, email specifying which position you’d like to run for and include a short biography listing any experience you may have.
