Upcoming 2016 Endorsement Forum

We will not be holding our regular CAPD monthly meeting in January. Instead, we are currently working on scheduling an Endorsements Forum. Below is additional information about that from our Vice Chair for Endorsements, Rick Cofer. Please contact him if you are interested in serving on the Endorsements Committee.

Our bylaws provide for an Endorsements Committee to work with the Vice Chair for Endorsements in setting up the endorsement process. Membership on the Endorsements Committee is open to any member of CAPD. Duties of the Endorsements Committee include drafting a questionnaire, scheduling the candidate’s forum and publicizing the forum and endorsement.

Our bylaws further provide that to be eligible to vote following the Candidates Forum, a member must be current in their dues and must have joined CAPD by the end of the 30th day prior to the endorsement meeting.

To win the endorsement of the CAPD, a candidate must receive at least 55% vote of the members present and voting.

We have already begun discussions with some other groups about holding a combined endorsement forum, just as we have in years past.

Here is a link to the Bylaws: http://www.capdaustintx.org/bylaws.html

If you are interested in joining the Endorsements Committee, please contact our Vice Chair for Endorsements, Rick Cofer, at capd@capdaustintx.org
