We are chartered by the Massachusetts Democratic Party and our activities are governed by our bylaws. At the July 29, 2018 meeting, a proposal was put forward to change to our bylaws to clarify and update them. Please read this description of why we are doing this and review this draft that proposes the changes to address the issues. Our current by laws are here. We will be scheduling a discussion of this topic at one of our regular meetings in the Fall.
