Frequently Asked Questions

What’s on the agenda? You can see the agenda here. You might also find this Robert’s Rules primer helpful ahead of the meeting.

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? We are trying to make sure it is. Make sure to note that when you register so we can keep you updated.

Will food or drinks be provided? Water will be available, but unfortunately, no outside food or beverage is allowed in the meeting space, so please make sure to plan accordingly before or after the meeting. If you have questions about this, please email our chapter co-chairs, Lucie Macias ([email protected]) and Leonard Pierce (co-chair-2@chicagodsa.org).

Is the location easy to get to? The Crowne Plaza West Loop is on Madison St (20 bus) & Halsted St (8 bus). It is near the UIC Halsted Blue Line Stop. Get CTA directions here.

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. The hotel offers parking for $15.

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).

Can I vote absentee? As of right now, there is nothing being voted on that would allow for absentee voting, only in person voting.

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