Members of the Board of Directors are expected to attend a regular monthly meeting, to be engaged in the activities at the precinct level, to report on the activities happening in their districts at regular monthly meetings, and to convene with the Executive Committee on a quarterly basis.

Additionally, representatives from the JFK Club, the Greater Chattanooga Democratic Women’s Club, the Hamilton County Young Democrats, as well as a member of the Chattanooga Area Labor Council, also serve as members of the Board. In addition to serving on the decision-making body of the HCDP, members of the Board of Directors should function as the lead organizers for the Precinct Officers and Members from the district or organization they represent.

The Executive Committee meets on a quarterly basis. The EC is made up of 4 Precinct Officers from each voting precinct in Hamilton County. Precinct Officers work to organize all the Democrats in a voting precinct – to build a strong community of like-minded people within a geographic area using tools and resources provided by HCDP. Precinct Officers should work as a team in their precincts to keep Hamilton County Democrats engaged, informed and involved. As a member of the Executive Committee you should feel empowered to attend monthly and/or quarterly meetings, participate in committee activities, and to take on other leadership roles as well.
