As the 2017 general election approaches and we close the books on another election cycle, NKD's committees are already digging into planning mode for 2018. To get us all started on the right foot, we are replacing October's general meeting with an invitation for everyone to get involved in New Kings Democrats' Committee Work Month!

Running for NKD Executive Committee! Somehow, 2017 is quickly coming to a close, which means that Executive Committee elections are right around the corner. There are going to be a bunch of open seats for 2018. Think you'd like to learn about taking on a more structured role (or know someone who should jump in)? Email Sara to get a conversation going.

NKD's 2017 Annual Report: Let's put it together! Writing and interviewing will be a particularly useful ways to help. Want to write content, or volunteer in other ways such as managing the structure, working on layout, front end dev, or photo editing? Have your own ideas? Email Ryan to get involved.
