2019-2021 Standing Committee Application


The DEADLINE to submit a timely application to be considered for an appointment to a Standing Committee has passed. CDP Standing Committees are comprised of between 15 and 25 members from the Democratic State Central Committee (DSCC) and will be made by the Chair of the California Democratic Party every year, following DSCC re-organization and the first convention thereafter. Committee members are expected to attend all committee meetings at their own expense.

In considering appointments to Standing Committees, the CDP Chair “shall take into consideration the Party’s commitment to non-discrimination, affirmative action, inclusiveness, and diversity including, but not limited to such things as: race, color, creed, national origin, sex, age, religion, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, persons with disabilities as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, economic status. The geographical location of the appointees, including their residence in urban, suburban, or rural communities, shall also guide the Chair of This Committee in making appointments to each Standing Committee.” (Section V, CDP By-Laws)

The current DSCC re-organization began in late 2018 for the 2019–2021 term. Only DSCC members for the 2019-2021 term, who have filled out this form will be considered.

The DEADLINE for initial appointments to Standing Committees for the 2019-21 DSCC has already passed.

After the deadline, current DSCC members may request a Standing Committee appointment at any time. Should there be a vacancy within a Standing Committee, any DSCC members who has filled out an online request form for that committee will be considered.
