I’m excited to be nominated for the Membership Coordinator position. I’ve been in Austin DSA since January 2017, and I’m continually learning more and more about organizing. We have an opportunity to engage more folks in Austin DSA’s work right now than ever before, and that’s going to take strategic organizing and teamwork. I’d like to be elected membership coordinator because I want to help set up processes we can use to grow our organization, but also deepen the engagement of our members in the work we’re doing. I think the best way to do that is to listen to folks who are already involved in these aspects of our work, and improve upon what’s there. There is so much great work being done, and I truly believe there are more than enough people to do it — if we get them into the right places!
