The Rules Subcommittee on Chartered Organizations:
Proposes guidelines to the Rules Committee, for their consideration and approval, concerning the Chartering of Organizations under Article X of the bylaws of the California Democratic State Central Committee (CDP); and, Recommends to the Executive Board the granting or rejection, of applications for Charter of organizations under Article X of the above-mentioned bylaws pursuant to guidelines adopted by the Rules Committee.
Notice To Charter Applicants
Each new charter application is referred to a team of members of the Rules Subcommittee on Charter Organizations. Review teams work with applicants to perfect their applications, noting any deficiencies and suggesting corrections, with the goal of producing a final application that can be recommended by the full Rules Committee to the E-Board.
The review process typically takes a minimum of 60 days. We urge potential applicants interested in establishing a chartered organization to submit an application at the earliest opportunity.
Please feel free to contact the Rules Subcommittee on Chartered Organizations Members at [email protected].
