Proposal Compendium

The updated 2023 Convention Compendium is now available. An initial 2023 Convention Compendium was previously shared.

Proposal Process

The proposal process is now open for the 2023 DSA Convention. This includes Resolutions, Constitution/Bylaws Amendments, and Platform Amendments. Any member or group of DSA members in good standing can submit proposals between Monday, February 20 and Friday, April 14, 2023 using the 2023 DSA Convention Proposal Submission Form. UPDATE: The deadline for proposal submission, including signatures and work plans, was extended to Friday, April 28, 2023.

To be considered for debate at the Convention, proposals must have a minimum of 300 signatures of support from DSA members who are in good standing as of February 20, 2023. For more details about submitting proposals, please review the 2023 Convention Rules.

Resolution Work Plans

Additionally, resolutions were required to have a completed Resolution Work Plan Proposal that must be submitted with the Proposal Submission Form.

Signature Collection

We recommend using a form for collecting signatures and requiring the following fields: name, DSA membership email, and DSA chapter. These items are all required when submitting the final list of signatures.

If you would like to list your proposal on the Proposal Hub page on the Convention site, please fill out the request form. This is optional, and requests will be reviewed and membership verified before they are posted. UPDATE: The Proposal Hub is now closed.
