Looking to make your voice heard? DSA is funded by membership dues, not corporations or wealthy oligarchs. This ensures that DSA members remain in full control of our organization. By paying dues, DSA members self-fund our own tools for liberation, and we’re using those tools to build a world in which everyone has a say in the systems that impact them. Because this is critical to our mission, we stress that anyone who has questions or concerns, whether you’re a member or not, should reach out to us in any number of ways:
2020 Steering Committee
Members elect a Steering Committee (SCOM) each year at our January General Meeting. The role of the SCOM is to maintain the day-to-day operations of the Chapter in keeping with our bylaws, to carry out the will of the membership body as a whole, and to act as a liaison with the national organization and other Chapters. Each set of Co-Chairs convenes a committee to support the work of their focus area.
