For those of you interested in participating in the NJ Democratic State Committee (NJDSC) Progressive Caucus, here is a notice of their next meeting, which also includes an election for caucus office. I have been to several Progressive Caucus meetings (which are held in different locations around the state); you will find allies there, and good discussions, but it seems to me, very limited power to act within the party; NJDSC has not given the power of endorsement of candidates to its caucuses.
Next NJDSC Progressive Caucus Meeting
Saturday June 16, 2018 – 10:30am-12:30pm
Library of the Chathams – 214 Main St, Chatham, NJ 07928 (map) (Chatham Library website)
Full agenda TBA.

The following positions are up for election:
Treasurer: The Treasurer shall be responsible for all financial records of all receipts and disbursements of funds of the Caucus in accordance with all federal, state and local laws and regulations, shall report all financial activity at each Executive Committee meeting, shall keep all organizational financial records in balance, and shall perform such other duties as assigned by the Co-Chairs or the Executive Committee.
Secretary: The Secretary shall record and distribute minutes of all Executive Committee and general membership meetings, shall be responsible for coordination of general membership correspondence including mailings and phone banks, and shall perform such other duties as assigned by the Co-Chairs or the Executive Committee. The Secretary shall maintain the official record which shall include a list of committees, committee members and voting privileges in committees, and shall maintain a record of member attendance at meetings.
Parliamentarian: The Parliamentarian shall be responsible for keeping good order in the meetings of the executive committee and the general membership meetings.
Member-at-Large: The Member at Large shall attend and participate in Executive Committee meetings and shall perform such other duties as assigned by the Co-Chairs or the Executive Committee. In the event of the absence of both Co-Chairs, the Secretary or Parliamentarian at a general meeting of the caucus, the member at large shall perform the functions of the absent member.
The available caucuses are listed on the NJDSC website. They invite you to check off which you’re interested in and provide contact info. I’m not sure how actively NJDSC’s website is maintained, so if you don’t hear back, please let us know and we’ll try to put you in touch with the right person.
