Letter from the ACDP Chair with Update Regarding County and District Conventions


Hello Alamance County Democratic Party Members,

On Wednesday night, the Executive Council of the North Carolina Democratic Party met again
to discuss the best possible solution for 2020 County and District conventions.

In light of the recent health crisis, the Executive Council has voted to postpone the dates of
County and District conventions and to move all county conventions to virtual conventions.

All County Conventions scheduled for March 28, 2020 will now be held April 25, 2020

All District Conventions scheduled for April 25, 2020 will now be held May 16, 2020

Each convention will be hosted on an NCDP-sponsored virtual platform. The platform will be
tested in advance and the NCDP will offer training for all. Please find additional guidance from
the state party online here.

NCDP is also taking additional precautions to protect the health and well-being of our members.
The state party has closed NCDP headquarters to the public through May 1, 2020; mandated
remote working for all staff until at least April 1st; encouraged members to limit in-person
meetings when possible; and, postponed all party sponsored events, including fundraisers, until
further notice.

Your county party is similarly following the Governor’s commonsense recommendations and the
advice from the CDC. That is one reason why we are also cancelling the ACDP general meeting
obviously scheduled for April 2nd.

We understand that many of us are anxious. We also understand that these decisions may be
frustrating to some and the prospect of using a new technology may be daunting but the party
has committed to making this process as smooth as possible. However, these are the best
measures and in accordance with guidelines from federal, state, and local leaders to protect the
health and well-being of all North Carolinians. Our number one priority remains the health and
safety of our communities.

Thank you for your continued patience,
Elaine Berry
