Committees & Councils

The Committees & Councils of the DCDP carry out assignments, provide recommendations regarding formal policies, programs and procedures to the DCDP Chair for the activities of the Party, and monitor implementation of these adopted recommendations. Committees are appointed with the DCDP and (with the exception of the Advisory Council), councils include individuals and/or groups outside the DCDP. The Executive Committee and Chair may also create ad hoc committees as needed to provide recommendations regarding policies not within the purview of a standing committee. An example of an ad hoc committee would be the Rules Committee, formed in 2009 to review DCDP party rules and make recommendations to help streamline the organization. The chair of each standing committee must be a Precinct Chair, and is appointed by the DCDP Chair. Members of each committee may be appointed by the DCDP Chair and recruited Committee members shall be: 1) Democrats 2) persons with knowledge or expertise related to the specific committee to which they are appointed; and individuals who are committed to the principles and platform of the Democratic Party.
