What does the GADCC do?
The GADCC promotes and encourages the participation and exchange of ideas among Chairs and Vice-Chairs of the various County Democratic Parties in the State of Georgia. The GADCC is a link to support the objectives of the Democratic Party at the local, county, state and national levels. As a GADCC member, you will have a network of Democratic Party supporters throughout the state.
Each participating GADCC County Party receives rebates from the annual Public Service Award Dinner. In addition to the 13 Congressional District Chairs who serve on the Executive Committee of the Democratic Party of Georgia, the GADCC has 13 District Directors who are Chairs or Vice-Chairs of a county party and serve on the GADCC Board of Directors. These 13 District Directors assist the counties in their respective Congressional Districts.
The GADCC is working diligently to identify active Democrats in counties that do not have a county party or need help to strengthen one. We believe that building a grassroots network of county parties will encourage additional Democratic candidates and offer them more local resources to promote their campaigns. The GADCC is a partner with the State Democratic Party to build this grassroots network.
Why Belong to the GADCC?
For a stronger Party…
The reason to belong to the GADCC is to be part of the network of County Chairs that strives to assist all County Chairs around the state. The GADCC keeps this network alive. With this enhanced communication, we can know when a county needs assistance, and be there to help. We firmly believe when we get all Georgia counties working together with the GADCC and the Democratic Party of Georgia, we will have a stronger Democratic Party.
For financial aid…
The GADCC also provides funding for member counties. We offer limited funding for things a county needs, and we are the only organization that does so. If a County Committee is just starting out, for instance, we will provide the first year money for a post office box, give them seed money to host a get-together, etc. We hold an annual fundraiser in August of each year to raise money for such purposes.
Being a member, $25 per year, allows member Counties to access to this funding, as well as to receive rebates on the tables purchased by Counties and on ad sales at this annual dinner. The County Party can solicit table and ad sales from businesses and Democratic leaders on behalf of their county party and still receive the rebates without spending money.
Counties have received financial aid totalling $9,275 this year from the GADCC.
