California Democratic Party 2022 Pre-Endorsement Conference Every two years, the CDP hosts regional pre-endorsement conferences where delegates, including those assigned to clubs, get to have a say in who the Party endorses for U.S. House of Representatives, State Senate, and State Assembly.
Clubs who submit their rosters to the CDP can earn one or more votes based on their number of unique members per Assembly District, at 1 delegate per 20 members.
Roster submissions were due on Wednesday, August 11th, 2021. Next steps will be determination of number of representatives per club, selection of representatives, and the pre-endorsement conferences themselves, after redistricting.
Pre-Endorsement Tentative Dates 2021-2022
December 18th, 2021 - Deadline for CCO potential representatives to be submitted to the both the Chartering Authority (SDCDP) and the appropriate Regional Director(s)
December 27th, 2021 - CA Citizens Redistricting Commission final districts announced
January 3rd-7th, 2022 - PDI will be placing new districts to rosters
February 12th-13th, 2022 - Regional Pre-Endorsement Conferences held
March 3rd-6th, 2022 - CDP Endorsement Convention in Los Angeles (club reps do not attend)
How Pre-Endorsement Works:
70%+ goes directly to consent calendar for CDP Convention (no club reps)
At least 50% but under 70% goes to an Endorsing Caucus at CDP Convention (no club reps)
Below 50%: “No Recommendation”
All incumbents move to consent calendar, unless 20% of voting participants object 10 days prior to February 22, 2022.

Votebuilder All clubs have the option to request a Votebuilder/VAN account  from the San Diego County Democratic Party, which has a quick lookup tool you can use to verify member information based on voter registration data (one per club).
Please email , and SDCDP staff (not me! :)) will get back to you as soon as they can.

Future Meeting Topics What topics are you most interested in hearing about at future Council of Clubs meetings? Let us know!
LinkTree: Council of Clubs Links and Resources Check out top links and resources at
LinkTree ( , (as well as alternatives like ), is a great way to put all of your important links in one place — like a website, but simpler.
It’s used frequently for social media, especially for Instagram which doesn’t allow links in posts. You can put your club website on your LinkTree/ as well as links to articles or other sources to make it easy for people looking at your posts to find the article/link you’re talking about.
Recurring Zoom Links for Club Meetings Reminder:
The Club or Coalition shall meet individually at least once quarterly and for all endorsement votes and  all meeting dates, times, and locations shall be provided to the SDCDP at least fourteen (14) days prior to the meeting for publication on the SDCDP website.  A copy of the notice, agenda, and minutes for business meetings or endorsement meetings shall be supplied via email to the Director of Clubs and the SDCDP.
We’d like to encourage everyone to use a recurring Zoom meeting link for your club so we can add the link in the Party Calendar, which is easier than updating it once a month with a new link.
You can have a recurring meeting and still require registration (if desired), and either automatically or manually approve registrations. You can have them register for each meeting, or once for all meetings where they can use the same personal link every month.
You can still extract attendance records, as Zoom provides a report per meeting.
We used this method all of 2021 for the Council of Clubs and Club Development Committee meetings, and it has worked well. If you need help setting this up, please reach out for assistance.
Party Calendar If you provided a Gmail address  when re-chartering, you are able to edit your club’s meeting entries on the Party Calendar, on which the club is setup with a recurring meeting. You can edit just one occurrence, or the complete series. You can add details of the agenda to each meeting, or change the date and time as required. If you need help, please reach out for assistance.
And as a reminder, if you change your meeting date, time, or location (Zoom link), you must update the calendar item yourself, or email  so SDCDP staff can do it.
If you don’t yet have access to edit your club’s Google calendar item, please email  and provide the email address you want to use so SDCDP staff can assist you.
