We have a rare opportunity to connect with and train the grassroots people who have recently awakened to political activism. The California Democratic Council has a well-earned reputation of providing training, materials and assistance to the Democratic clubs.

Do you have political or technical experience and are you ready to lead?  If so please consider running for one of the offices to revitalize the CDC.

Most offices have a two year terms but due to a delay holding the 2017 election, the term for the officers is just one year, ending in 2019 at the annual convention.  The Trustees have rotating three year terms.

The offices below are as listed in the latest adopted bylaws ( Article IX), not as currently in use on the website.
