Charter with VAYD
Chartering with the Virginia Young Democrats offers your clubs an immense amount of resources throughout the year! The process is very simple and can be a great way to help your local club. As a chartered organization, you and your members will have access to discounted rates at special events of the Democratic Party of Virginia (DPVA), the chance to interact with political leaders year round, manuals to help your club with outreach, connections with other organizations locally and statewide, and much more!
Follow the steps below to charter your club! It only takes a few minutes. Click here to download the 2022 Chartering Packet (pdf). Here's what you'll need:
- The document that governs your organizational operations. Many of organizations already need to have this to become a recognized organization at school.
- Officer Roster
- o We do not require any specific positions; simply list what the leadership is for your organization. A recommended template is included below. Rosters should only be submitted in .xls, .xlsx, or Google Sheet, format.
- Membership Roster
- To be considered a “member” each person listed must list their first and last name, phone number, email, birth date. Clubs must have at least 10 members in order to be considered fully chartered. A mailing address is not required but is highly encouraged. A template membership roster is included below. Rosters should only be submitted in .xls, .xlsx, or Google Sheet, format.
- Outreach Plan
- This details how your organization plans to be accessible to all interested parties, and the community.
