Why become a member of the Orange Democratic Town Committee (ODTC)?
You’ll get to join like-minded citizens to help advance Democratic policies in Orange & CT. We have fun working together to achieve shared goals! It’s an excellent way to volunteer in Orange based on your interests, skills and availability.
What does it take to become a member?
Members are elected by registered Democrats in Orange via an in-person caucus held in January of EVEN years. If you want to join, email Jody Dietch. The next membership caucus will be held in January 2022.
What does being a member involve?
Membership expectations include attending meetings, fundraisers, and working during elections. We work hard and have fun while doing so. There are several ways to get involved, including:
– Planning and participating in fund-raising events
– Phone-banking to campaign for our candidates
– Writing postcards before elections
– Canvas with or on behalf of candidates
– Provide support behind-the-scenes
– Work at our headquarters leading up to elections
Is the committee active aside from election time?
We’re involved in initiatives throughout the year, and are proud of the ways we’ve helped Orange continue to be a great place to live and raise a family. We’re neighbors and friends with Republican, Independent, and unaffiliated voters, and while we don’t always agree on policy choices, we value the role everyone plays.
Are there opportunities to volunteer without becoming a full-fledged member?
Yes! At election time, there’s lots to do, and there are ways to help throughout the year. Ask us.
