Message from the CDWC Chair:
Dear CDWC Members and Friends,
The Cuyahoga Democratic Women’s Caucus Steering
Committee has completed a review and update of its Bylaws. The
Bylaws are on our website and can be viewed here.
With this email, we are announcing
a new procedure for an Annual Meeting and notice of the opportunity to express interest in serving as an At Large Member of
our Steering Committee. From time to time, we have received questions as to how members can be more involved. We hope
that this process will reach more members and encourage them to step forward. As outlined below, those interested will be
able to submit information and speak with members of the Nominating Committee.
The 2022 Annual Meeting will take place on February 24, 2022,
at 7:00 pm, via Zoom, and will include election of up to five (5) At Large Members
of the CDWC Steering Committee. The balance of the Steering Committee members and the Executive Officers will be up for
election at the Annual Meeting in 2023.
The CDWC Executive Officers include Cynthia Demsey, Chair; Kim Thomas, Treasurer; Jane Buder Shapiro, Recording Secretary;
Susan Stechschulte, Vice Chair/Membership; and Linda Striefsky, Vice Chair/Operations.
We all owe a debt of gratitude and appreciation to all our current Steering
Committee members: Kim Thomas, Juanita Brent, Crystal Bryant, Jane Buder Shapiro, Karolyn Isenhart, Lana Moresky, Susan Moran
Palmer, Monique Smith, Susan Stechschulte, Linda Striefsky, Meredith Turner, Sandi
