ANNOUNCING THE 2023 YDSC STATE CONVENTION
First in the Nation
The Young Democrats of South Carolina will hold our 2023 State Convention on Saturday, May 20, 2023 in Columbia, South Carolina. There will be a Special Election to fill the unexpired term of the Second Vice President, as well as an opportunity to amend YDSC's governing documents, the Platform, and standing policies.
The date of the Convention was moved after receiving feedback from members concerned about returning to Columbia so soon after the SCDP Convention on April 29. Please stay tuned here for the location as our new date puts this in conflict with the Clyburn Fellows' graduation the same day.
There will be an Awards Reception after the General Session on May 20.
CHARTERING AT CONVENTION
All Chapters must re-charter each year ahead of the State Convention. Caucuses that already chartered last year do not have to charter this year, but will need to next year. Members wishing to form a new Caucus at this Convention should submit a charter application at this Convention. Chapters must fill an updated Chartering Form, maintain a minimum membership, submit an updated membership and officer list (as well as hold chapter elections).
Chapters are asked to complete their chartering filings by Wednesday, May 10.
Help support the mission of YDSC by sponsoring the convention today! YDSC intends to raise $10,000 this year to grow our chapters and membership.
Please make checks payable to the Young Democrats of South Carolina or YDSC and send them to the address at the footer of the site.
