The Fairfax County Democratic Committee is excited to host its first-ever candidate training! There are over 50 offices on the ballot in next year’s pivotal local and state elections, and the FCDC is committed to preparing Democratic candidates with the skills they need to effectively run their campaigns. The training will consist of discussion sessions led by notable current and former elected officials and campaign staff.

Discussion session topics include:

  • Setting up your campaign committee
  • Qualifying for the ballot
  • Political fundraising
  • Messaging

…and much more!

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to get your campaign off to a great start! First-time candidates are encouraged to attend. If you were elected to your first term in 2020 or 2021, you are welcome to attend this training. Coffee and lunch will be provided. A social hour at a nearby venue will follow the event.
