If you would like to make a difference in local, state and national politics, joining the Hunter Mill District Democratic Committee (HMDDC) is a great first step. By joining us you will also be joining Fairfax County Democratic Committee (FCDC).
Here is how the process works:
It’s a good idea to attend an Hunter Mill District Democrats meeting. Meetings are the second Wednesday of every month.
Most meetings are held at the North County Government Center in Reston and begin at 7:30 pm. Check the Hunter Mill Democrats Facebook page and Hunter Mill Events Calendar for specific location information. Anyone interested in the committee’s work may attend any meeting.
HMDDC hit its cap of 130 members prior to its reorganization in December, 2019. New applicants or individuals who applied for membership after the deadline are now welcome to apply to become an Associate Member. Associate Members pay a reduced fee of $40 per two-year period (which can be waived at the discretion of the District Chair(s) and they are not required to attend any FCDC or HMDDC meetings. If you decide you would like to join the Hunter Mill District Democratic Committee as an associate member, fill out the 2020-2021 Associate Member Application Form.
For questions about applications or meeting locations, contact the Hunter Mill Democrats’ Chair, Richard Chew.
At the next meeting your application will be voted on by the membership of the Hunter Mill Democrats, and if approved, will also be voted on by the full Fairfax Fairfax County Democratic Committee membership at its next meeting.
New members are always welcome.
The responsibilities that come with committee membership are not many, but they are important.
We ask that HMDDC members commit to volunteering some time for our official activities, such as participating in our Lasagna Dinner fundraiser (Spring), get out the vote efforts (GOTV), voter registration efforts, etc.
Members also are encouraged to canvas neighborhoods on behalf of candidates, staff phone banks and take part in various other campaign activities.
Attending the monthly meetings of the Hunter Mill Democrats also gives members an opportunity to build alliances with other Democratic leaders and keep current on new events and issues.
If being an associate member of the committee is not for you, we have many volunteer opportunities available.
