The elected National Political Committee leads the implementation of DSA’s major political and organizational goals. These are broadly defined by delegates to the National Convention every two years.
The DSA and DSA Fund national offices in New York City and Washington D.C. have eleven full time staff members, two part time. The staff does not set DSA’s political goals. Rather, staff helps to fulfill the goals set by DSA’s elected volunteer leadership.

- Operations Director (part time), Sasha Hammad, ensures our compliance with regulatory rules and improves our general efficiency.
