    We're looking for dedicated, hard-working, flexible people who are willing to step up and take a leadership role. We'll provide training and documentation for all county party positions, but the only way our county party works is if people stand up and volunteer. Consider running for a county party office!

    On March 30th, we'll elect county party officers to the following positions at our county convention, as laid out in the NC Democratic Party's Plan of Organization:

    Chair: The county party’s leader, who is responsible for setting out a vision for the county party and making it happen.

    1st Vice Chair: The Chair’s right-hand person, also responsible for precinct organization.

    2nd Vice Chair: Responsible for training and education.

    3rd Vice Chair: The communications director for the county party.

    Secretary: The county party’s record-keeper and administrator.

    Treasurer: Responsible for keeping us on a secure financial footing and filing financial reports with the state Board of Elections.

    We will also elect members to represent Orange County to the NCDP's 500-person governing body.
