DFL SENIOR CAUCUS CHAPTERS
The DFL Senior Caucus grew quickly as a state community caucus on behalf of
seniors. Minnesota is a big state and in order to get information to this widely
dispersed membership it was necessary to form local Chapters that represent a
defined geographic area.
Chapters act locally within the framework of the DFL Senior Caucus. Our
Constitution states that “the DFL Senior Caucus members residing within a
particular Minnesota U.S. Congressional District, or smaller geographic area,
may organize and operate a Chapter of the Senior Caucus in that district or area
in order to further the purposes and activities of the Senior Caucus.”
When the local Chapters work collectively, it provides a formidable statewide
force to work on behalf of senior causes, issues, and candidates who support senior issues.
Senior Caucus members who want to form a local Chapter can find information
and obligations on the link below.
