2022 SMC Dems CADEM Endorsing Convention Luncheon

We are so excited to gather in person during the upcoming CADEM Endorsing Convention, even though it’s virtual.

All Democrats are welcome to join, but capacity is limited to 100 attendees, so buy your ticket or become a Sponsor as soon as possible!

There is plenty of parking available, the venue is near public transit, and the food will be amazing, so we hope you can take a lunch break to spend time catching up with fellow Dems and to hear from local elected officials and candidates in the upcoming 2022 Primary and General Election!

See you on March 4th!
