Democrats believe that the lives and concerns we share with our fellow Americans must be the cornerstone of democratically elected governmental institutions at the local, state, and national levels. These institutions, at their best, can be instrumental in sustaining and promoting opportunity, equality, freedom, and justice for all. Accordingly, Democrats share and actively protect our Core Values.
The LCDC membership elects Officers at the biennial reorganization meeting, last held in December 2015. The Officers include the Chair, two Vice-Chairs, the Secretary and the Treasurer. These Officers run the day-to-day affairs of the Committee and are the highest level of central leadership.
LCDC members from each of Loudoun’s eight election districts also select their own District Chair and Vice-Chairs at the reorganization. Each District Chair is responsible for holding monthly District meetings, organizing LCDC activities within the District (including membership recruitment), and monitoring the elected officials (Supervisor and School Board Member) for the District.
The LCDC maintains several standing committees to perform the work of the Committee: Activities and Fundraising, Candidate Recruitment and Training, Communications, Diversity and Outreach, Finance, Former Chairs Advisory, Green Initiative, Issues, Membership, Presence, Presentation, Precinct Operations, and Young Democrats. The LCDC Chair appoints the Chair of each of these committees.
Together, the Officers, District Chairs and Standing Committee Chairs form the Executive Committee. The Executive Committee meets monthly to discuss LCDC business and vote as required on certain matters. The Executive Committee meetings usually occur on the Thursday preceding the LCDC Membership meeting at 7 PM; LCDC members are welcome to attend.
