At the Welcome Reception on Friday, we want to highlight the many members of the California Young Democrats that are elected to public office, from the local School Board to State Senate. But, we need YOUR help to make sure we don’t miss anyone! Please click here to let us know about a local Young Democrat that is elected to public office so we can highlight their story at Convention!

Unfortunately, our hotel room block is completely sold out. If you still need housing, we suggest using a service like to find a room as close to the Sacramento Convention Center as possible. There are also a limited number of local Sacramento-area Young Democrats who have volunteered to house CYD members from across the state to sleep at their personal homes during the convention. If you are interested in being paired with a local Young Democrat willing to host you, sign-up here.

A number of bylaw amendments have been submitted and will be considered by the CYD Rules Committee on Saturday, May 20, 2017 at this year’s convention. We will be hosting two conference calls for chapter leaders to provide feedback and walk-through the proposed amendments as well as providing copies of the proposals in advance. More details will be provided shortly.

We look forward to seeing you in Sacramento at the 2017 CYD Convention May 19-21!

Democratically Yours,

Eddie Kirby
CYD President

Allan Acevedo
