Anyone who has not yet completed the 2020 Caucus Training can do so at https://iowademocrats.org/train2020. The more people who do the training, the more organized and welcoming our caucuses will be. As party activists, please consider taking this training so that we can provide a positive experience for the many people who will attend on February 3.
Every precinct will need volunteers at the caucus. If you are willing to volunteer in any way (greeting, helping at the registration table, etc.) please let your precinct leader know. Precinct leaders and locations can be found here. Alternatively, you can let Pam Deichmann know you’re willing to help, and she’ll point you in the right direction: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Blair Lawton, Party Affairs Director with the IDP, will be holding a series of in-person trainings and conference call trainings, open to anyone who wishes to attend. Please click these links to see the dates and times for these opportunities, as well as a registration link.
