Tuesday, December 11: Oakland County Democratic Party Convention/Election!

Note: For the OCDP Convention, it's the BB Dems board's understanding that we have 7 OCDP County Committee Member slots available, although that could be wrong. We have several people interested in some of these positions already.

The official eligibility criteria are listed below, but the BB Dems board will only be approving BB Dems members who have paid their dues for 2019 and who live in one of the 6 communities served by the Club: Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, Bloomfield Township, Franklin Village, Bingham Farms or Beverly Hills.

If you haven't paid your $15.00 2019 BB Dems membership fee yet, you can do so online here!
