Dear comrades of the CPDA,
I would like to take the time to outline something that was lightly touched upon by our Commissar of Literary Affairs, comrade DeathlessLegends13
. In his recent journal post requesting writers for the Party's blog, The Red Star Vanguard
, he had started one of several aims of the CPDA's One Year Plan.
What is the One Year Plan? It is, simply, the Central Committee's organized effort to fulfill all goals established at the 2011 CPDA Congress as voted on by the Party membership. The Plan was voted on by the seven member Central Executive Committee, and while participation is voluntary, I personally encourage all comrades to help in the effort. The Plan should be fulfilled no later than November 1st, just short of this year's Party Congress.
The Plan, as approved by the Central Executive Committee, is as follows:
Under the Commissar of External Affairs we will try and get more involvement with external groups and organizations. Present our artistic "weaponry" for any who want to use it. The Agitprop section of our gallery should be referenced as a useful resource for posters and flyers. The Commissar of External Affairs may seek whatever assistance is needed to accomplish this task, both within and without the CPDA.
Under the Commissar of Visual Arts the creation of a YouTube channel to compliment our organization's blog should be worked out. Various works by our comrade artists should be used, as well as any videos relevant to the Commissar of External Affairs mission. We should also develop further educational resources in this category.
Under the Commissar of Theory and Ideology we should develop a lecture-based program for furthering the education of Marxist science.
Under the Commissar of Literary Affairs we should focus on improving the quality and updates of the Red Star Vanguard. As the Commissar currently is also the Chief Editor of the RSV, this should be less complicated. A dedicated writing staff should be sought out, with possible assistance from Theory and Ideology in relation to an educational series.
Under the Commissar of Internal Affairs we should maintain our internal vigilance and deal with complaints in a timely and civil manner.
Under the Commissar of the Treasury we should push forward with fundraising efforts to keep the group subscribed, as well as to have funds available for contests relating to any of the above missions.

I would request that all members able to do so help in these efforts. Any comrades interested in helping out may contact the relevant Commissar or a Junior Member of the Central Committee. Currently, the Commissars should be developing their individual agendas for these tasks. The office of the General Secretary shall be available for any assistance required to fulfill the goals of the Plan in a timely fashion.
Comrades, may we succeed in fulfilling the Plan and driving the aims of the CPDA forward into the new year. All of these goals are the expressed opinions and concerns of you, the members. The Central Committee and it's Executive Committee have formed this agenda, it is now up to you to help us. While we aim to serve the interests of the Party, the Central Committee is comprised of only so many and certainly will need your assistance in this effort.
CPDA General Secretary
