On Thursday, March 12, 2020, in response to the public health emergency facing our state, the North Carolina Democratic Party’s State Executive Council unanimously passed a resolution outlining steps all of us must take with respect to upcoming County Conventions to protect our communities.
The steps outlined in this resolution conform to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services recommendations to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 at community events.
What this means for Chatham:
NCDP is providing Zoom teleconferencing software for all county organizations to use. This will allow convention delegates and the general public to attend the conventions from their homes. This software will support either connecting over the internet or by phone for those without an internet connection.
Delegates to the convention have been emailed a link to register for the Convention. They will receive the login credentials for the Zoom event. Our convention is from noon to 2 pm. Delegates will be able to login 15 minutes before the start time.
Convention documents are below.
Any non-delegates who wish to attend the Convention should email Cheri DeRosia requesting registration information.
