Keeping Members Better Informed, Better Connected, and More Politically Effective.
WDC members work together to elect Democrats; keep voters informed; advocate on state and local issues of importance to women and families; and educate our community on critical issues. The stakes are high in the 2020 election. Learn more about our work and what you can do.
In the past we alerted you in a September 1 email that it was time to renew your membership. We delayed that notice this year so you can renew using our new software. We will launch MyWDC on September 17 and you will receive a message with step-by-step instructions on how to use MyWDC. Your individual MyWDC profile will always show the date you need to renew your membership and pay your dues for the upcoming year.
The purpose of this discussion is to introduce attendees to the inner workings of the Maryland Democratic Party, explain what it does and how it does it, and help people understand why they need to be aware of, and involved with, the State Party.
Panelists: MDP Chair Maya Rockeymoore Cummings; MDP Executive Director Ben Smith; MDP Executive Committee member Arthur Edmonds; MoCo Democratic Party Member Marie Mapes, who will discuss how the Coordinated Campaign works; and Aruna Miller, Chair, MDP Women’s Diversity Council. Moderator: Former MoCo Party Chair Karen Britto. There will be plenty of time for Q&A.
All are welcome. No charge. Park free in the Council Office Building garage. Metro-accessible.
