Membership & Volunteer Opportunities

There are multiple ways you can help advance the policies and ethos of the Democratic party in Orange and the state. You can become a member of the Orange Democratic Town Committee (ODTC), help during election time, participate in events, and donate.
Why Join the ODTC

You’ll join like-minded residents to help advance Democratic policies in Orange and Connecticut. We're a vibrant group that enjoys working together to achieve shared goals! It’s a great way to volunteer based on your interests, skills and availability.

How to Become a Member

Members are elected by registered Democrats in Orange via an in-person caucus or meeting held in January of EVEN years. However, currently, there are vacancies based on changes in member status and we are presently accepting new members. If interested in joining, email ODTC Chair Jody Dietch.

What does being a member involve?

Membership expectations include attending monthly meetings, fundraisers, and campaigning during elections.


Here are some ways to get involved during election season:

  • Planning and participating in fund-raising events

  • Phone-banking to campaign for our candidates

  • Writing postcards to residents supporting our candidates

  • Canvassing - door-knocking or distributing literature on behalf of candidates

  • Providing support behind-the-scenes

  • Working at our headquarters

  • Running for office! 

Is the committee active aside from election time?

Yes, we're involved in fun and meaningful community events throughout the year, from hosting fundraisers to participating in our town's hallmark events, including the Orange Country Fair and more. 


Joining the ODTC is a great way to help shape the governance of Orange!

Can I volunteer without becoming a member?
