ATTENTION JCD MEMBERS!
YOU MUST JOIN/RENEW & REGISTER BY DEC. 11 IN ORDER TO VOTE AT THE REORG!
If you think your membership is current, then you don’t need to “Join/Renew” but you do need to REGISTER. If you aren’t sure about your membership status, then go ahead and REGISTER and we will let you know if your membership has lapsed so you can renew it before Dec. 11.

It’s time for JCD to elect new leaders for 2-year terms! Join us at the:
Biennial Reorganization Meeting
Sunday, Dec. 13, 2020 at 10 am on Zoom
(link coming later)
To nominate someone for any of the offices, email the following to firstname.lastname@example.org by Dec. 7:
The nominee’s FULL NAME, ADDRESS, PHONE NUMBER, EMAIL AND GENDER (which must be the same for all positions for which they are candidates).
If possible, include a list of ALL positions for which the person wishes to be considered.
If someone is willing to serve in different positions, we recommend they submit their name for nomination for any and all positions in which they are willing to serve. In this way their name will be on the ballot and considered. For example, if they were considered for but not elected Secretary, they could still be considered for District Representative. This is an important point since we will NOT be taking nominations from the floor for this meeting. If a person is elected to a position, they can simply decline the other nominations as the meeting proceeds.
Nominees may submit a picture and a 300-word statement to be placed on the JCD website. Email the statement and photo to email@example.com by Dec. 7.
