The Democratic Convention Week That Was….

…Amazing!

I was elected a member of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) at the Democrats Abroad Global Convention in Berlin in May and was honored and lucky to be a part of the Democrats Abroad delegation to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Whew!

I invite you to be a part of this with me by following my DNC Member page on Facebook where you can see pictures and videos from the convention as well as information I receive from the DNC.

Black Women in Europe™ blog has official accreditation for the 2012 Democratic National Convention


How exciting is is that we have received official media/blogger accreditation to cover the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina in September!

This comes on the heels of being elected as a delegate for Democrats Abroad, a huge honor.

These serves as confirmation that I am meant to be at the convention to witness President Barack Obama receive the nomination to run for President of the United States (I had the honor of being there in 2008 at part of the African American Political Pundit team).

I have the chance to hear Mrs. Michelle Obama speak, and how I would love to interview her (doesn’t every media outlet attending the convention want to interview her).

Look for hourly/daily posts here from the convention in September, including photos, videos and recaps of the action on the convention floor, in the halls, and at various convention venues.

 

 

It’s official – My 2012 Democratic National Convention Certification


Dear,

On behalf of the Democratic National Committee, I am pleased to congratulate you on your election as a Delegate to the 2012 Democratic National Convention. This email serves as your Official Certification to this historic gathering in Charlotte, North Carolina, September 4-6, 2012. As your Secretary, this is one of my most serious responsibilities as we prepare for our nominating convention.

This is an important time for the Democratic Party. The nation, and indeed the world, will be watching as we continue to chart our course and vision for the future. We will showcase the accomplishments of the Obama Administration and the talent of our leadership. Our Convention will reflect the diversity and grassroots of our Party – and America.

We will come together to celebrate and enthusiastically re-nominate Barack Obama and Joe Biden. Plus, we will prepare for the General Election. Imagine what we will be able to accomplish when we reelect our President, elect more Democrats to the US Senate, take back the House of Representatives, and our candidates succeed at every level of government. Frankly, I can hardly wait.

We encourage you to visit the 2012 Convention website.

Your State Delegation is your primary point of contact during your time in Charlotte. The morning delegation meeting is the most critical. At that meeting, your daily credential, the schedule with gavel time, caucuses, events and transportation updates, as well as issue discussions, voting procedures and other convention materials will be delivered. Often there are speakers including State Party leadership and others. In addition, on Sunday evening, September 2nd you are invited to attend your Delegation Welcoming Party. Please continue to be in touch with your State Party for further details on this and other information.

The Office of the Secretary can be reached should you have any questions.

Thank you for your service to the Democratic Party. It is an honor to represent President Barack Obama at the Democratic National Convention. Your commitment to his victory, your hard work and sacrifice are appreciated, and will be for generations to come.

See you in Charlotte.
