CALL TO CONVENTION

Commencing at 10:00 AM, on Saturday, June 15, 2024,

the 2024 Iowa Democratic Party State Convention shall be held in person at

The Meadows Events & Conference Center at Prairie Meadows

1 Prairie Meadows Dr.

Altoona, Iowa

Delegate Registration/Check-in starts at 7:00 AM.

Undesignated Alternate Check-in at 7:00 AM, seating starts at 9:00 AM

           

All delegates who attend the convention will be required to fill out a registration form, either online before the convention or in person at the Convention site.

 

The Credentials Committee will provide a badge to wear while in the convention center. Only delegates with the appropriate badge will be allowed into the convention hall.

Pre-registration is encouraged as those delegates who do so will have a much quicker check-in process the morning of the convention. 

1.    Online pre-registration will be available starting at noon on June 8 and ending at 8:00 PM on June 13, 2024. To start the convention business on time, we encourage all delegates to use this process. To access the pre-registration form, type this address into your browser window: https://bit.ly/2024IDPStateConv

2.    On Saturday, June 15, starting at 7:00 AM, in person registration will begin.

 

Delegates who pre-register will need to pick up their credentials at the Pre-Registration Check-In tables in the hallway after you enter the center from the parking lot. No further signatures will be required.

 

Delegates who do not pre-register must proceed to the Registration tables just outside the Convention Hall to sign their registration forms and pick up their credentials.

 

No later than June 11, 2022, the Convention Call Booklet will be available online at https://www.theconventions.org/. If you cannot access the website or obtain a printed copy of the booklet from someone else, please email conventions@iowademocrats.org to contact the Arrangements Committee to reserve a printed copy of the booklet to pick up with your credentials material on June 15.

 

Should you be unable to attend the Convention, we will miss your participation. You may use the attached form to name a Designated Alternate from among those who have been duly elected as an Alternate to State Convention to serve in your place. If you do not choose an Alternate, the Credentials Committee will choose one of the Alternates for you according to the hierarchy determined by the Rules and Nominations Committee. The attached form is not transferable and must be presented to the Credentials Committee by the Alternate named in the document. 

 

Fees and Meals: Delegate Fees have been set at $40 per delegate, however, no delegate’s right to participate or vote during the convention will be dependent on the payment of that fee. A boxed lunch will be provided. A beverage center will be available near the Convention Hall. Please review the convention booklet for further information.

 

You can pay your delegate fee in any of the following ways:

  • Online when you fill out your pre-registration form.

  • By card, check, or cash on Saturday, June 15, 2024 after picking up your delegate packet at the convention site. Checks should be made out to “Iowa Democratic Party.” Please note that staff will not be equipped to make change.

  • For those of you who can afford to do so, we ask that you consider a monthly donation to sustain the work of the Party throughout the year.

 

Please be respectful of the health of your fellow delegates and others working to ensure a great convention. If you are ill, please select an Alternate using the attached form. While masks are not required, they are encouraged for those concerned about risks to their health from many people in an enclosed space.

 

We look forward to seeing you on June 15. There is a lot of work to be done at the convention and afterward. Your participation is needed.

 

Thank you for supporting the Party and helping to define the future direction for Iowa Democrats.
