Two Important Events
1. Haywood County Democratic Convention
Haywood County Democrats will convene on Saturday, March 23 to elect party leaders for the next two years during their annual County Convention at the USDA Agricultural Center, 589 Raccoon Road, Waynesville.
Registration will begin at 8:00 a.m. and a pancake breakfast will be served prior to the start of the business session at 9:00 a.m.
Representative Joe Sam Queen will kick things off by giving an update on the activity during the 2019 NC General Assembly session.
In addition to the election of party officers, other business will include electing delegates to serve for a two year term on the North Carolina Democratic Party Executive Committee and appointing delegates for the 11th Congressional District Convention to be held at Pisgah High School on Saturday, May 4.
Any registered Democrat or Unaffiliated voter is welcome to attend the convention, but voting power is limited to party members who were designated as delegates during their annual precinct meeting in February 2019.
2. Precinct Organizing Meeting
Tuesday, March 26 at 6 pm, Haywood Democratic Precinct Officers are invited to Democratic Headquarters for an information session. The goal of the session is to teach precinct officers how to build precincts for the 2019/2020 campaigns. If you missed the meeting in February, this is your chance to gain the information you need to be an effective leader in your precinct.
Volunteer Appreciation Brunch
Our Volunteer Appreciation Brunch was a great success! On January 12, despite the threat of ice and snow, the Haywood Democrats hosted about 60 volunteer for a get-together over loads of delicious food to contribute ideas and suggestions for our county party going forward. We have compiled these ideas and will be working on strategies and information sessions for this year.
