FCDC Caucuses & Standing Committees

First Meeting Schedule and Chair Elections

FCDC Standing Committees and Caucuses are excellent ways to get involved! Meet Democrats passionate about the same issues, advocacy, or with the same talents as you. Some of our Standing Committees are headed by Vice Chairs already elected, but the rest of these groups will have elections to select the Chair and sometimes other officers at their first meeting. Please reach out to your District leadership, or to FCDC HQ, if you have questions.
