Thank you Central Valley for your hospitality last week and we will back again shortly.
You Have Been Asking About Standing Committees
You can participate and help the party by volunteering extra time serving on a standing committee. You can find a list of the committees here.
Traditionally, any delegate may apply online at Cadem.org for a standing committee. You do not need to have any special qualifications to get appointed. However, if you do have any special qualifications, please let them know what qualifications they are. Being dependable, showing up and helping out are great transferable skills, because showing up and pitching in are probably the most valuable asset looked for. The Chair and executive officers generally select persons to be appointed on the standing committees.
I was appointed to the Credentials Standing Committee by former Chair John Burton in 2015. In 2017, I was re-appointed to the Credentials Standing Committee and elevated to one of our several Co Chair positions. So I encourage you to seek an appointment even if you are new to being a delegate. There are people on the committee that will teach you what you need to do!
