2020 Convention Resources


Welcome to our SV DSA call-in chapter convention! Thanks for your understanding as we try a new format for our chapter meeting in response to current health conditions.

Spring convention will include exciting plans from our working groups and a chance to chat about where to take our chapter this year. We will also elect our next chapter committee!


As a first step, please sign in to the meeting here: sv-dsa.org/2020-convention-sign-in. If you’re new, we’ll email you an invite to our internal message system (Slack). If you’re an SV DSA member, we will email you an online ballot for our officer elections.


Our agenda can be found at sv-dsa.org/2020-convention-agenda.

Zoom Call-in Info

To call in, download the Zoom app for your computer or mobile device and visit https://zoom.us/j/163327986 when the call starts. If needed, you can call in using the number 669-900-9128 with Meeting ID 163 327 986, but please note that it is much easier to participate using the app so you can see video and the side chat.

If you’re not able to sign in to the call or have another technical issue, please email tech-data@siliconvalleydsa.org. If you are in the call and experiencing a technical issue, please use the chat window to ask for help and we will help you as best we can.
