February 20-22, 2015 Wyndham Garden Hotel, Austin
I want to remind you all about some upcoming deadlines and make sure that every chapter has the information to register for the convention, submit awards, make hotel reservations and help TDW by becoming a sponsor. See the form and online links below. Registration forms are also available from your Chapter President.
We need sponsors to fulfill our mission and want to say thank you to them. To Sponsor the 2015 Convention, see the links below.
The deadline for Star Awards and Outstanding Scrapbook is January 10, 2015. This is a great opportunity to recognize those outstanding members that went above and beyond this past year. I know there are many members that worked very hard this past election.
Speaking of hard work, this is the year that we raise money for 2016. The republicans may have won in the short term, but it has just motivated me to work even harder. We will win. It is not an if, it is a when. To that end, I am asking each chapter to sponsor a table at this years Gala if possible. What a great way to show your chapter’s pride and celebrate with your fellow club members who worked so hard. The form is listed above.

2016 started the day after the election and Texas Democratic Women will once again help lead the way to a blue Texas, because Democratic values are Texas values.
