During the chat, @MARACtweets(the official MARAC Twitter account) will post a series of questions (e.g. ”Q1, Q2”) with the #electmarac hashtag. For example, a question would be constructed as follows:
            Q1 What positions have you held in MARAC? #electmarac
To respond to a question, include the question number (e.g. “Q1, Q2”) and #electmarac in your response so others can find your tweets. A response might look like this:

Attendees can also use the hashtag to ask each other questions related to MARAC leadership and committee service.
Has anyone here served as a state caucus rep? What was your experience like? #electmarac
