March 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 their precinct. If you are interested in helping our precinct chairs in this capacity, please reach out to us.

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 Communications Committee is now its own separate entity within the Montgomery County Democratic Party. This committee will assist the officers in developing and enhancing our Party’s use of our various communication avenues. These avenues include Facebook, Twitter, our website, and our newsletter. There will also be a smaller focus on event promotion and event photography,

The Communications Committee will be meeting on March 14th at 7:00pm located at our Conroe headquarters.

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.

The Finance Committee will be meeting on March 28th at 6:30pm located at our Conroe headquarters.

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.

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.

General Party Events

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


Contact Us and Get Involved 

We are always looking for fresh ideas in managing the office (and the Party) and encourage you to jump right in. This is your Party. We can’t do this without you! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We look forward to hearing from you.

If you would like to volunteer with us, please fill out the form here and we will contact you shortly.

    Very nice outreach information. Well organized. You should post on all Indivisible sites if you have not already done so.

  • Theresa Woods says:

    Is the newsletter position voluntary? How much time is expected.. Is it already set up?

    • Griffin Winkworth says:

      Hi Theresa,

      Yes, the position is voluntary. Our newsletter is already set up. What we are looking for help with involves proof-reading and some editing when we get short article submissions. The newsletter traditionally goes out every 2 weeks. Time commitment-wise, I would say no more than 3 hours a week.

      The program we use is Constant Contacts but it is quite easy to learn how to use. It is similar to editing a word document. If you have any more questions, please let me know.
