Program and Outreach Team:  This committee plans programs for the regular Executive Committee meetings, facilitates communication between elected officials and the party on the issues, and takes steps to plan outreach activities for Democrats to get together outside of business meetings and bring new Democrats into the organization.   

Website and Public Relations Team:  This committee keeps the website up to date and seeks opportunities to promote party activities and issues via other media.

Data Management Team:  This committee keeps up to date databases of contact information for elected officials, candidates, precinct leaders, volunteers, and donors.  This may also includes resources for candidates including returns from previous elections, lists of community organizations, precinct and district maps, etc.
