The Fairfax County Democratic Committee (FCDC) Steering Committee is the central organization that coordinates the work of the County, District and Standing Committees. Steering Committee meets once per month on the second Tuesday.
The Steering Committee is made up of all elected officers of the County Committee, the Chairs of the nine District Committees, the Chairs of the Standing Committees and caucuses, the highest ranking officers of the three Congressional District Democratic Committees with boundaries inside Fairfax County (8th, 10th, 11th), a representative from the Fairfax Young Democrats, the immediate past Chair of FCDC, and any member of the State Steering Committee that is also an FCDC Member.
Fairfax County has nine Magisterial Districts, each with an elected Supervisor and School Board Representative. In FCDC, each Magisterial District has a Democratic Committee that operates within it. These organizations host events, campaign for candidates, and operate year-round to organize for the Democratic Party.

FCDC has a number of Standing Committees that cover various issues and topics of interest within the County Committee.
Caucuses within the FCDC are organizations that are not organized around a specific cause or issue, but represent historically underrepresented constituencies that share inherent and/or immutable traits.
