July was a very productive month for Precinct Committeemen training. Several County Parties held their own training throughout the state. The IDCCA conducted two Precinct Committeemen Trainings that were hosted by the Will County and Kane County Democratic Parties. The IDCCA also assisted with Votebuilder training hosted by the Kankakee County Democratic Party.
The Precinct Committeemen training were widely attended in both Will and Kane Counties. We had close to 50 Precinct Committeemen attending both trainings. A special thanks to Carpenters Local 174 in Joliet and the Painters District Council #30 in Aurora for allowing us to hold the trainings there.
The Votebuilder training in Kankakee County had close to 20 Precinct Committeemen attend on a stormy evening. Thank you to Kankakee Community College for allowing us to host an interactive training with Votebuilder.
Thank you to Will County Chairman Scott Pyles, Kane County Chairman Mark Guethle and Kankakee County Chairman John Willard for facilitating these trainings. Thank you to Steve Drucker of “Democracy Now: Talk it or Lose it” and to Deputy Majority Leader Lou Lang for presenting.
In the coming months, several trainings are being planned throughout the state. We are finalizing details on trainings in Charleston, Bloomington, Rockford, Peoria and Carbondale. The dates, times and locations of these trainings will be announced on our Facebook and Twitter.
If your County Party is interested in hosting a Precinct Committeemen training, please contact me immediately so that we can begin planning.
