Executive Committee 2016-2018

Per our by-laws, the WCDP Executive Committee is made up of 66 total members. 22 of these – 1/3 of the Committee – automatically consist of the most recent nominees for countywide office and the county commission, State House, State Senate, and U.S. House whose districts include all or part of the County. The remaining 44 – 2/3 of the Committee – are elected at a County Convention from regions of the county, with representation apportioned according to each region’s voting performance in the most recent presidential election.

The Executive Committee meets six times a year at regularly scheduled meetings.
