Proxy Information

Are you a delegate sending a proxy, or are you a proxy who is attending for a delegate? In order for a proxy to register he/she will need to be sure the DSCC member delegate's 2018 Convention Registration and annual DSCC dues are paid.

ONLY the DSCC Delegate can access their personal login information. Please confer with the DSCC delegate to work out how to obtain the login information or have the Delegate pay their own registration and 2018 DSCC dues before sending in the proxy form.

The DSCC dues may only be waived in writing by the delegate. If the proxy wishes to have the delegates dues waived, the request MUST ONLY come from the DSCC Delegate themselves.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you get a waiver for the delegate dues, the delegate or proxy MUST still pay the convention fees, which cannot be waived. ONLY the annual DSCC delegate dues can be waived.

To request a DSCC delegate dues waiver, the DSCC Delegate MUST please email with the information below.

• Delegates Registered first and last name

• Delegates Registered address on file

• phone number

• email on file or email the delegate member wishes to have on file with the CDP
