CDS Announcment: CDS Election Dates, Autumn 2020


The CDS is not only a beautiful place to live but also a community of interesting people who determine how the CDS is run. We elect representatives to manage the day to day, month to month work that makes the CDS wonderful.

The citizens who run for office are our CDS friends and neighbors.  Maybe you will decide to be one of them.

A government term of office for the 5 members of the Representative Assembly (RA) and for the Chancellor is 6 months, so 2 terms a year. December 1 through May 31, and June 1 through November 30 each year.
