Accessing Convention Platform & More

Dear Delegates,

If your convention registration and dues have been taken care of (either by waiver or payment), you should have received an email titled "Invitation to online event" from "CADEM" from the email addressno-reply@hopin.com. Hopin is the new platform that the CDP is using for the upcoming convention.

The email contains a button/link to create an account in preparation for the convention. Many people received this on April 7th. You may need to check your spam/junk/promotions folders.

If your dues are paid up and you have not received it, contact the CDP office, because you will need this to join the event.

The convention agenda now contains the dates and times for most of the caucuses, so check it out.
