Join Us: Summer NDP Meeting in Chadron

The Nebraska Democratic Party (NDP) looks forward to seeing State Executive Committee (SEC) and State Central Committee (SCC) members along with grassroots Democrats at our Summer Meeting in Chadron on June 9-10!

You do not have to be a SCC or SEC member to attend the meeting. We encourage all Democrats to attend so you can learn how to be involved in party operations and campaigns.

At our quarterly meetings, the NDP conducts party business, issue and constituency-based Caucus meet to plan events and we gather to further the goals of the party.

Our Fall Meeting is in Omaha on Oct. 21, 2017. The Fall Meeting includes a full-day training on Oct. 22 with three tracks for candidates, campaign managers,  and grassroots leaders.
