Join Our Standing Committees

FCDC Standing Committees are excellent ways to get involved! Meet Democrats passionate about the same issues or with the same talents as you. Some of our Standing Committees are headed by Vice Chairs already elected, but the rest will have elections to select the Chair and sometimes other officers of each Standing Committee at their first meeting. Please reach out to your District leadership, or to FCDC HQ, if you have questions.
