Taking on a leadership position is a great way to get involved and contribute your talents to the Cville Dems. Currently open positions (that are often filled/shared by two people) are:
- Breakfast/Events Chair
- Vice Chair for Records
Summary info about each is given below; if interested you might be interested, please reach out to email@example.com .
The two Co-Chairs have general supervision over local party affairs of the Committee, are the chief executive officers of the Democratic Party in Charlottesville. It’s an important job for sure, but doesn’t require as many hours as you might think (and there are two people splitting the work!).
Way back (i.e. pre-Covid!) the Cville and Albemarle Dems took turns hosting monthly Saturday morning breakfasts where interesting speakers shared their knowledge on topics like maternal health, economic realities for Millennials and Gen Z, and educational equity.
The breakfasts have been on hiatus due to Zoom fatigue, but it’ll soon be time to resurrect them…and we may try some evening programs at a local brewery to broaden the appeal. This role is a great way to get involved and, as a bonus, turn a spotlight on progressive issues important to you. Here’s what’s involved:
- Working with the Albemarle Dem’s breakfast chair to plan and schedule the year’s meetings.
- Every other month arranging the speaker/panel details (if in-person reserving a meeting place arranging coffee/food, not much required for Zoom).
- Communicating those details to the speakers and to the Communications Chair for publicity purposes.
Vice Chair for Records
The Vice-Chair of Records maintains our voter information and internal Cville Dems data (e.g. member lists and mailing lists).
