We will also be electing Committee Officers:

Accommodations Officer: A new position in charge of responding to requests for accessibility advice from Democratic organizations and Campaigns who request help in creating accessible space for events and also responsible for seeing to it that individuals within the Democratic Party requiring disAbility accommodations receive the accommodations which they need.
