Volunteer

There are many ways to contribute to our organization – here are just a few:

Voter Outreach

PCOs
The PCO/Area Organizing Committee chair is currently open, and supports recruitment of, and trains, organizes and assists Precinct Committee Officers in the discharge of their duties. This Committee shall establish Area Organizing Subcommittees (AOS) to advance PCO recruitment and involvement in the Organization.  Contact pco@5thdems.org

The PCO is your precinct’s representative to the Democratic Party – you let us know what your neighbors are thinking about important issues and candidates. Attending meetings (1 a month, 3 hours) is preferable but not mandatory. Any other skills you want to use – let us know and we’ll find a way for you to contribute.

The PCO position requires you to work in your neighborhood throughout the year. You will be a much more effective PCO if you are working with your neighbors regularly (through hosting monthly precinct coffees, walking, calling around, etc.).
