DSA Committees Accepting Volunteer Applications Now
Are you a DSA member? Want to volunteer for one of DSA’s national working committees? Right now, applications are open for our Political Education Committee, our National Education Committee, and our DSA Growth and Development Committee. Read on for more about their work and how to apply. Application deadlines are Sunday, 12/15/2019 and Monday, 12/16/2019.
Political Education Committee: Application Deadline Extended to 12/15
The National Political Education Committee is springing back into action, and you can apply to join them! The team’s first project will be to work with a pilot group of DSA chapters to improve upon or get their political education programs off the ground. If you have the time to dedicate to the committee, some experience in political education, pedagogy or training, and a burning desire to introduce your comrades nationwide to more and better political education, please apply by Sunday, 12/15.
You must be able to commit to a one-year term, monthly report-backs, and regular working meetings to join this committee. You can find the application form here.
Apply for the National Electoral Committee: Deadline 12/15
Our National Electoral Committee evaluates and endorses electoral campaigns submitted by local chapters, then organizes nationwide support for them. They also connect to chapters to learn from what they’re doing, provide training and resources for chapters, and work with our DSA In Office Network of elected officials.
If you have electoral experience you’d like to share, or are interested in connecting with chapters to support our electoral work, consider applying to the NEC. Work is done remotely, so this is a great option for members who can’t get involved with their chapter events in person due to schedule conflicts, mobility, or other issues.
You can find a description of the committee’s responsibilities and roles here, plus a link to the application.
The application deadline is 12/15. Please note that the application requires references and writing, so do not leave it to the last minute.
Help Us Grow To 100k — Apply For The Dsa Growth And Development Committee: Deadline 12/16
As part of the DSA 100K resolution passed at our national convention, the Growth and Development Committee was established to oversee membership growth, retention, chapter support, training and more.
If you’re a DSA member with a passion for this work who wants to be involved at the national level, apply using here by December 16th. This committee is incredibly important as we seek to grow DSA in 2020 and beyond. If you have questions, please email [email protected]!
