CCDCC NDT logo

The National Democratic Training Committee is a free service for Every Democrat, Everywhere.   

The NDTC offers free, online trainings that guide you through creating a personalized, targeted, and professional campaign plan focused on winning.

There are currently three ways to get involved in our training:

1. Webinar for New Candidates: On December 5th at 9pm the NDTC is holding a webinar with DNC Vice Chair Michael Blake. The topic will be running for office. The webinar will cover best practices for your campaigns, and what your expectations should be. This is an event you do not want to miss, so be sure to register today!

2. Cohort Training: To help candidates like you, the NDTC is launching their inaugural online cohort. If your election is in 2018, this is the perfect opportunity for you. In addition to their online courses, you’ll be working in small groups and will also be able to get live feedback from the trainers. 

3. Free Online, On-Demand Training: You have access to NDTC's free online courses. They are video-centric and available online 24/7. The classes can be taken as many times as needed, so you can learn at your own pace. 

Every race is different, and every locality has its own quirks. But the fundamental campaign tactics and strategies can be tweaked to fit any race. 

The NDTC is not here to help you craft your positions or policies. Their goal is to help you build a solid campaign and win your election.

Consider Giving Some of Your Time to Turning Out the Vote

Posted on 25 August 2017CCDCC

With the 2018 elections fast approaching the Central Committee is in need of volunteers to turn out the vote in Calvert County! While the CCDCC always operates with a volunteer force managing the Headquarters, running food drives, and performing various community outreach programs, election years present a great many more tasks. We need volunteers to staff information booths at community events and at polls on election days. With over 35 thousand registered Democratic or unaffiliated voters to get in touch with in the next year, the Calvert Democrats need people to begin phone-banking and door-knocking right away. If we are going to turn out a democratic election in Calvert County in 2018, we need to start canvassing now. If you can spare a few hours a week to this, please get in touch with us right away.

 

Precinct Captains and Volunteers Needed!

CCDCCPosted on 16 June 2017

The Calvert County Central Committee has already begun preparing for the extremely important election in 2018. The BEST way to reach voters is volunteering within your precinct. Right now, the CCDCC needs your help.
