Every two years, DSA holds a convention where the membership discusses and votes on changes to our national structure and our political goals. This year, the convention will be held on August 2-4 in Atlanta, GA. Any member or group of DSA members in good standing may submit resolutions to be debated at the DSA National Convention in August between April 2nd and June 2nd.

The DSA SF Special Meeting: All About the National Convention
was held on Sunday, April 7, 2019 1-4PM at The Redstone Building

The meeting covered:

  • How to submit by-law amendments to the national constitution, how to submit resolutions, the drafting process before the convention, and the process in which they’re voted on
  • What a delegate actually does, how delegates need to prepare for the convention, how much time/work is expected of them, and how YOU can run to be a representative of DSA SF
  • The role of the National Political Committee, how much time/work can be expected from an NPC member, and how YOU can run for NPC
