This is a reminder that Automatic Delegates do not count toward your delegate quota. Here is the passage from the DPW bylaws regarding Automatic Delegates:
 
Each county chairperson, administrative committee member, U.S. Congressperson, U.S. Senator, State constitutional officer, and state legislator shall be an automatic delegate in addition to the regular delegate quota for a county, and shall have no alternate. All individuals designated as automatic delegates to the state and district conventions must be currently paid members of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin 14 days before the opening date of the district and state conventions.
 
Important Dates:
Friday, May 16 at 5:00PM: Deadline for county parties to submit or approve delegates

Volunteering for the Convention:
There is a volunteer sign-up form located on www.wisdems.org/convention. After the form is completed, someone will follow-up with details. Each volunteer shift is approximately three hours long. Every volunteer will receive training before their shift, so no experience is necessary.

I also wanted to resend some important convention-related forms and documents:
Convention Delegate Quotas for 2014
Delegate & Alternate Reporting Form (in Word and PDF format)
Authorization for Raising Alternates to Delegates Form (in Word and PDF format)
Call to Convention for 2014
I look forward to seeing you at the Convention!

Best,
