Part of why we choose the first week of March for our 2014 DPCA Global Meeting was to coordinate with the timing of the winter ASDC* and DNC meetings -- so that DA leaders coming earlier to Washington could attend/observe those other meetings, listen to great speakers and network with our Democratic counterparts in the U.S. And so that state party and DNC/ASDC leaders would be in town and might also attend our events.
The tentative agenda for the DNC meeting was just released and is attached for your information. Most of the DNC meetings -- on Thursday afternoon February 27, Friday February 28 and Saturday March 1 -- are open to the public.
The ASDC (*Association of State Democratic Chairs - of which DA Vice Chair Ken Sherman and I am members) is holding its training sessions on Wednesday afternoon February 26 and business meeting on Thursday morning February 27. If you would like to attend any ASDC sessions, please let me know and I will ask the ASDC to add your name to their list.
We are inviting state party, DNC and ASDC leaders to our Gala events and to some parts of our DPCA meeting.
Looking forward to busy and productive days in Washington. Hope you will be joining us!

Dear DA Leaders,
Below (and attached) (see DPCA-Leadership) is a more detailed agenda for the February 26th training sessions being offered at the ASDC winter meeting in Washington. Please note some of the trainings will be at the DNC (430 South Capitol St SE) and others at the Capitol Hilton (1001 16th St NW).
Registration is required for these sessions. The ASDC has requested that I submit the names of DA leaders who would like to participate. If you would like to attend, please let me know which sessions.
Again, the ASDC training sessions that a few of us attended in Minneapolis (April), Scottdale (August) and New Orleans (November) were great!
Jonae Wartel, the ASDC Training Director who organized those sessions, will be coming to our DPCA Global Meeting to conduct 3 (different) sessions Monday March 2. Lucky us! Details on those sessions coming soon.
Updated Agenda for the 2014 DPCA Global Meeting (15-day notice)
