CLUB BUSINESS

Club Officers:

During the meeting, Club members in good standing will vote on two items:

1. Confirm the appointment of the following individuals who were appointed to their respective roles by the Club’s Executive Team on February 2nd:

Dave Cimperman, Vice President

Erin King, Recording Secretary

Nick Bitz, Corresponding Secretary

2. Amend the Club’s bylaws to change the singular role of “Secretary” to the new, separate roles of “Recording Secretary” and “Corresponding Secretary.”

To preview the Club’s current bylaws, please CLICK HERE.

Membership:

March is the month for everyone to renew your paid membership or become a new dues-paying member.  But, you can start early!  Membership dues helped the Club produce and mail postcards that reached every registered Democratic voter before last November’s local election, maintain the Club’s presence on the internet, hold events like the summer party at Elmwood Cabin, and more.

Dues:

  • Student:  $5
  • Senior:  $10
  • Individual:  $20
  • Family:  $30

There are four easy ways to renew or become a new, dues-paying member:

1. Pay securely on the Club’s website by CLICKING HERE. Click the appropriate level for you on the right of your screen.

2. Print the member application form by CLICKING HERE.  Mail the form and your check to the Club’s Treasurer (name and address are on the application)

3. Save a stamp and request that the Club send you an application form and pre-stamped return envelope.  Send that request now with a quick email by CLICKING HERE.

4. Attend the Club meeting at the Library on February 22 or March 29.  You can complete an application form and provide a check in person!

Record-keeping is easier if everyone completes the membership process beginning now through the end of March.  As a Rocky River resident and registered Democrat, becoming a paid member confers the ability to vote on  items such as Club Officers, endorsements made by the Club, changes to the Club’s bylaws, and other decisions that require voting by members.  We also welcome supporters who wish to become  Associate Members (registered Democrats who are non-residents of Rocky River — does not confer Club voting rights).

Thank you in advance!



ELECTION 2022: MAY 3RD PRIMARY

In this critical midterm election year, Democrats across the country — including us in Rocky River — will work to preserve our majority in the U.S. House and Senate.  President Biden can’t do it alone.  Our votes and activism will help elect Democrats who will protect voting rights, address climate change,  strengthen middle class incomes, and so much, much more.

In Rocky River this year, we’ll be voting for a U.S. Senator and Congressional Representative, Ohio Governor, State Attorney General, Secretary of State, State Board of Education, Ohio Statehouse Representatives, Cuyahoga County Council offices, judges, and more.
