One of the reasons members of DSA feel so passionately about our work is that it is democratically governed. While we are able to quickly respond to current events, our bedrock national priorities are voted on by delegates at our national convention every two years.
Members also elect our sixteen-person national board, the National Political Committee (NPC), at conventions. But in between conventions, if a vacancy opens up the NPC appoints a replacement, as outlined in our constitution and bylaws.
We currently have two vacancies, positions formerly held by Danny Fetonte and Leslie Driskill.
The NPC has voted to have an open nomination period during which members can nominate themselves or another member for these positions. After that the NPC will deliberate and appoint the two replacement NPC members from the nominated candidates.
Nominations will be open until July 15.
