Local Conventions are the "highest deliberative body of the Local to amend its structure and decide the political priorities of the Local between Local Conventions".

This year, we are hosting the Local Convention both on Zoom and in-person.

Important Dates Leading up to the Event

Resolution and Bylaw Amendments

Consent Calendar

In order to streamline procedure and to assure ample time for debate, the Local Convention Working Group collaborated on a draft for a consent calendar.

A consent calendar is a list of proposals which are considered non-controversial and likely to pass unanimously, so they are put into a list and passed as a single vote with no debate.

If however 3 or more people object to something being on the consent calendar before the convention, it will be removed and added to the roster for debate. You can voice your objection to us via email at DSASacramento@gmail.com. Please only voice objections if you are registered and planning to attend the convention.

View the Consent Calendar Here.
