|Save the Date: March 3-6, 2022: California Democratic Party Convention in Downtown Los Angeles Vaccination and testing will be required for people attending in person. Tentative agenda on pages 7 & 8 here: https://cadem.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/2021-November-EBoard-Floor-Report.pdf|
Party leadership will be:
1) Consulting with public health professionals for direction as to the proper protocols for an event of this nature – especially given the fluidity of the pandemic; 2) Exploring any/all options available for a hybrid meeting with remote access for key portions of the meeting for those who are unable or unwilling to participate in-person; and 3) Fully assessing the associated costs, legal ramifications, and applicable bylaws provisions related to final proposed protocols. If the final proposed protocols are aligned with the Executive Board’s decision in November to have an in-person convention with vaccination and testing required, no additional action will be needed. But, if the final proposed protocols differ from those recommended by public health professionals, party leadership will present those options to the Executive Board for further action.
