Rationale: To provide an opportunity for members of any income to represent the chapter at the national convention without an additional burden on their budgets.
Whereas the $25 (early bird) or $50 (regular) registration fee for the national convention is effectively a donation to DSA by a member that they do not have the choice to make and may not be within their budget, and could prevent members from being able to afford to represent the chapter as an elected delegate,
Be it Resolved that the Treasurer of MetroDC DSA shall keep a record of donations from current members for the purpose of paying the Registration fee of any elected designate who requests such assistance, in any amount requested up to $25 if before June 15th or $50 until July 15. Any amount that exceeds the amount in the ‘fundraising’ record shall come from the general Treasury. Any funds in the registration fundraising record that have been unrequested shall go into the main Treasury account of the local.
