Blogging the Last Day of CDA


Day 4:

Sunday was the last day of the Convention and we met in the morning for the Closing Ceremony and Awards Ceremony. Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton spoke and she was great! Following her speech CDA played a hilarious clip from the Colbert Report with the Congresswoman.

Heather Brown, the CDA Membership Director, then presented the awards for State Federation of the Year to Pennsylvania and Chapter of the Year to Catholic University, as well as many individual awards. Matt Zagaja, former CDM President, was honored with an MVP award and Pat Johnson, the current CDM President, was honored with a Rising Star Award. Go Massachusetts!

The CDA Convention was such an amazing experience! I learned so much and came away with great ideas for both the Smith Dems and the College Dems of MA, met a lot of people, had fun, and got really excited and motivated for the upcoming year. Definitely think about attending next year and feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

Dems love,
KM
