Call for candidates! The AfD national council needs you!

If you'd like to take a more activist role in the Alliance for Democracy, why not run for the Alliance national council?
The council meets once a month by conference call to discuss ongoing and potential new campaigns and approve budgets. Any member in good standing is welcome to run. We invite you to contact the office and find out more if you're interested, or if you have questions about Alliance for Democracy structure and governance in general.

Candidates for all posts on the council are welcome, as well as at-large members and regional representatives. Candidates should expect a minimum time commitment of 10 hours per month, or more if you take a leadership role in a campaign or in coalition-building--which we hope you do! Regional reps should be prepared to do some outreach to members and allied groups in their area. All potential candidates need to be on email, as much pre-conference call discussion takes place online.

We welcome regional representative candidates from all regions (see this page of our website to see what the regions are) , but especially welcome regional representative candidates from the following areas:

  • New York state
  • the Southeast: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Missisippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee

We look forward to seeing your hat in the ring!
