April Volunteer Opportunities

Become a Precinct Chair

We have several precincts without a precinct chair and we would like to get those filled. You can see the list of vacant precincts here and you can use the link at the top of the page to check what precinct you live in. Here is a link to a precinct chair handbook that goes into detail about some of the responsibilities involved in this position. Precinct Chairs serve on the Executive Committee of the local Party and play a central role in helping us move forward.

Assist a Precinct Chair

We have precinct chairs who need help from folks to do phone banking and VAN work in their efforts to mobilize democrats in their precinct. If you are interested in helping our precinct chairs in this capacity, there are plenty of opportunities available.

The Outreach Committee

Another important way you can help is by becoming a member of the Outreach Committee. The Outreach Committee consists of several different subcommittees, each headed up by a subcommittee chair. These subcommittees are responsible for holding separate meetings to discuss and tackle the issues facing their group. Additionally, all subcommittees will work together with the party on large-scale outreach projects within the county. You can find a list of the current subcommittees here along with a general description of what is involved with each one.

The Communications Committee

We are looking for volunteers to assist us in Party communications.

The purpose of the Communications Committee is to facilitate Party interactions with the public through the use of traditional communication methods (e.g. press releases & media events) as well as digital communications (e.g. website & social media outlets). The Communications Committee assists the local Democratic Party in advancing the party’s message and principles and has direct oversight of the Party’s media presence in conjunction with the officer board.

 

Headquarters Volunteers

We have a headquarters in Conroe that is staffed solely through our volunteers. We are open 10:00am to 4:00pm Monday through Friday. We have 2 shifts you can sign-up for. You can do the morning shift from 10:00am to 1:00pm, or you can do the afternoon shift from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. You can find the current schedule of office volunteers here. We are looking to have at least 2-3 people per shift. If you have some time during the day to volunteer, we would love to have your help.

The Headquarters Committee

We are  looking for volunteers to serve on the headquarters management committee. If you have previous office management experience, we want to especially encourage you to join our team of volunteers who manage the day-to-day operations of our Party headquarters

The Finance Committee

The Finance Committee serves as the fundraising arm of our Party. The members of this committee will work with the committee chair and Party officers to plan plan fundraising events and managing our sustaining membership program. Everyone is encouraged to be involved.

Run For Office

We are also looking for potential candidates to run for office, especially in 2018. If you have any interest in running, now is the time to start preparing.  You can find a list of the 2017 elections here and the 2018 elections here. The Texas Democratic Party can provide you with training materials and we can help you get the ball rolling locally.

Party Leadership Positions

We have open positions for both the LGBTQ and Hispanic representative on the Senior Advisory Council. The Senior Advisory Council makes the day-to-day decisions within the Party outside of our County Executive Committee meetings. If you are a member of either of these communities and you would like to take a more active role in the direction of our Party, please consider applying for either of these positions.

Help us with Voter Registration

Find out more information here about getting certified to register voters.

Website Content Creation

We are looking to bring on several people to write-up summaries of various Party events for the Local Party News section of our website. We would like to get enough people writing so all of our events can be covered.

Donate To The Montgomery County Democratic Party

You can also support our local party by becoming a sustaining member. We have several different donation levels and would greatly appreciate your support. Our local party doesn’t receive any money from the state or national party, so we operate solely through the support of our members. Find out more information about becoming a sustaining member here.

You can find a full list of the upcoming Party events here, which includes the currently scheduled subcommittee meetings.
