It will be great to see all of your faces on Zoom as we hear from some terrific candidates and learn about safe gun storage with Skye Thietten.

Looking forward to seeing everyone next Thursday, May 12th at 7PM,

The November meeting of the Rochester Area Democratic Club has been moved to Tuesday, November 30, 2021 at 7 pm. The meeting was rescheduled because the State Party informed our Club Monday afternoon that, in order to vote, or run for, a local Club office you must be a member in good standing of both the Michigan Democratic Party and local Club at least 30 days in advance of the election. This is the first time we were informed of this interpretations of the MDP rules. The meeting was rescheduled to give you an opportunity to join the MDP if you wish to become a member in good standing before our next Club election on November 30. Therefore, the last day you can do this is October 31, 2021. To join the MDP, click here. To check the status of your MDP membership, email Lisa Kiefer at lkiefer99@gmail.com
Here are the Election Rules.

Our guest speaker at the November meeting will be Michigan Supreme Court Justice Richard Bernstein who is known for his inspiring messages. You won't want to miss the opportunity to hear from him. After Justice Bernstein speaks, the Club will elect Officers and the Executive Board Members to serve for the next two years.

Our guest speaker will be Dave Woodward, Chair of the Oakland County Commissioners. For those of you who have heard Dave present before, we know you will not want to miss this meeting. He is an exciting and dynamic speaker. For those of you who have not previously heard Dave speak, you are in for a treat.

Following Dave's presentation, members in good standing for at least 30 days will be asked to vote on three proposed amendments to our current Bylaws submitted by RADC member Bruce Fealk. We will have copies of our current Bylaws and the proposed amendments at the meeting. However, for members who intend to vote, we ask that you review the proposed amendments and current Bylaws before the meeting. The proposed amendments will require the approval of 2/3rds of the members present before our Bylaws can be amended to reflect the proposed amendments. Only current members can vote on the proposed amendments.

The Board has also decided to postpone the vote on three Bylaws amendments proposed by RADC member Bruce Fealk because (i) we have had many new people join as members of the Club in just the past few weeks and (ii) we want to give them a chance to vote because one must be member in good standing for at least 30 days in order to vote on the proposed amendments to our current Bylaws.

The full agenda for our October 14 meeting is at the very bottom of this email, followed by the minutes of our August meeting.

Join us at the Kiwanis Pavilion for a meeting you won’t want to miss.

The next meeting of the Rochester Area Democratic Club is important in two ways: it’s our first in-person meeting more than 17 months. And it’s the opportunity for our members to vote on our long-awaited revised club by-laws.

Many months of effort have gone into revising these by-laws, and it will remain a “living document.” Club Chair Sigrid Grace will discuss the key changes at our meeting.

Approval will require a 2/3 majority of those members present and voting. Only current members can vote on the proposed by-laws. Members have been sent an email with links to the current and proposed by-laws.

Please take advantage of this opportunity to see your Democratic friends and vote on this important proposal!

We ask that bring your own folding chair. There aren't many seats providing social distancing at each picnic table. Feel free to bring your own food to the meeting, as there will not be other food or beverages available.

Parking is available off of Pine St., behind the Municipal and Police Building.
