Frequently Asked Questions

(Updated 10/2/18)

What’s on the agenda? You can view the agenda here. You might also find this Robert’s Rules primer helpful. All CDSA members (whether or not you registered for the meeting yet) received relevant voting information via email on Sunday 9/30/18, so check your inboxes!

How do I know if I’m a CDSA member? Anyone paying yearly or monthly National DSA dues is a member. If your dues have lapsed, you’ll receive a notice after you register for the meeting. You can pay dues here.

Will child watch be available? Yes! Make sure to note that when you register.

Is the location easy to get to? Hairpin Arts Center is on the intersection of Milwaukee Ave (56 bus), Diversey Ave (76 bus) & Kimball Ave (82 bus) and all three of those bus routes stop there. Get CTA directions here.

It is a 5 minute walk from the Logan Square Blue Line Stop.

There is metered street parking available, some of it is free on Sunday. You’ll know you don’t have to pay because the meter where you pay will tell you if parking is free at that time.

We are meeting on the second floor (entrance is on the Milwaukee Ave side of the building), and there is an elevator available. If you have any other accessibility questions or concerns, please email our chapter co-chairs, Lucie Macias ([email protected]) and Leonard Pierce (co-chair-2@chicagodsa.org).

Isn’t the Chicago Marathon that day? Yes, but Hairpin Arts Center isn’t on or near the marathon route. You can see the marathon route here. If driving, here’s the information about street closures. Overall, the marathon will have a minimal effect on our meeting.

Can I vote absentee? Yes, you will be able to vote absentee for electoral endorsements only, but you absolutely need to register by end of day Friday 10/5/18. There will be a lot of voting that can only happen in person, so we hope to see you at the meeting!

I can’t make it, but want to donate to CDSA! Rad! You can do that here. Thank you!
