Online Registration: EVERYONE who plans on attending the reorganization convention is asked to register online. Remember, you are attending one of the largest county conventions in the country. Your early registration helps ensure that the convention is properly staffed and prepared to make the event a good and safe experience for all.
Delegate (Elected PC’s) Day-of Check-In: All delegates must check-in to the Central High School cafeteria between 11:45 am – 1:45 pm to be properly credentialed for voting. At 1:45 pm check-in will be closed down. No further check-ins will be allowed. Credentials are mandatory and you will not be allowed to vote without them. Please allow yourself time to check-in for voting.
Non-Voting-Guests Day-of Check-In: As a security measure, guests are asked to report to the cafeteria and report to the guest table for guest credentials. Guests are welcomed and asked to assist us in making this a good and safe experience for all.
Running: If you intend on running as a candidate for an office of the executive board of the Maricopa County Democratic Party, you must be on this list to run for election. ONLY ELECTED PC’S MAY RUN. If you would like to be included in the candidate announcements being sent to the MCDP email group before the convention, you must email Executive Director Miguel Medrano by Friday, November 30th at 5:00 PM. You are allowed 200 words and 1 graphic. A separate email will be mailed for each individual elected office and will include every candidate (who meets the deadline) for that office. Please email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteering: A smooth and well executed convention will rely on many volunteers stepping-up to make this one of our best conventions ever. We’ll need assistance with security, greeting guests, assisting guest, and check-in. All volunteers are asked to attend a briefing at the Central High School Cafeteria at 11:15 AM on the day of the convention. To volunteer for the convention, please register online at:tinyurl.com/MCDP-2018Reorg.
Giving: It is an expensive endeavor to ensure thousands of delegates and guests are comfortable, content, and safe. The county party alone is responsible for fundraising for every dollar spent on this event. That includes facility rental, security, audio visual personnel, classrooms, comfort items, credentials, and more. Please contribute what you can to ensure we can offer you the very best experience possible. We thank you for your commitment to helping fund one of the fastest growing and most successful county party in the country.
