What happens at a state convention?
We’ll meet to elect DNC members, delegates to the national convention in Philadelphia, and to set a platform and update our bylaws. We’ll also hold our Nellie Tayloe Ross Gala at that time. Check back for an announcement of our speaker for this year’s spectacular event!
It is important to remember that though there are rules governing the number of voting delegates and alternates in each county, everyone is welcome to attend the State Convention; it is inspiring, motivational, and fun!
Who is speaking at the Nellie Tayloe Ross Gala?
Our guest speaker this year is Jess O’Connell who serves as the Executive Director of Emily’s List. Emily’s List is an organization that was formed with the goal of electing more Democratic women to office at the national and local level. As the state with the lowest number of women in our State Legislature, we at the Wyoming Democratic Party believes there is no greater message we could bring to the state of Wyoming than an emphasis on diverse candidate recruitment. We are thrilled to bring Jess O’Connell to share her experience and expertise with our energetic Democrats and to our state convention theme- ignite change!
