Approved events are carried out by the Events Committee and other interested volunteers.
The GOTV Committee works to maximize the turnout of registered Democrats and Independents in Camp Hill Borough to vote in primary and general elections, either in person or by mail. Committee members work in coordination with registration efforts and candidate recruitment to identify and support candidates and provide the community with information that supports their election.
The Membership Committee advises the Officers and members on membership recruitment, onboarding, engagement, and retention strategies. The committee also seeks to match new members with appropriate tasks that can either be accomplished in a short amount of time or with those tasks that are ongoing. The Membership Chair works closely with Officers, to plan membership drives and special events for prospective members. The Chair sets the goals with input from Co-chairs and other officers.
