2023-2024 NPEC Applicant Info Sessions

Start: 2023-03-16 20:00:00 UTC Eastern Standard Time (US & Canada) (GMT-05:00)

This is a virtual event

The National Political Committee is looking for nominees to serve on the National Political Education Committee from May 2023 through April 2024! As the DSA committee charged with providing a socialist political education to its members and the public, NPEC welcomes members with substantial roots in diverse areas of DSA. We are asking chapters and official national committees, working groups, and caucuses for nominations (specifically, formally recognized caucuses such as AfroSoc, not ideological caucuses).

Nominees should be prepared to devote at least 5 hours a week to committee business and contribute to substantive discussion on the content of political education material as well as contribute to its implementation. This implementation can take place in (but is not limited to) any of NPEC’s four principal areas of organizing:

  • Trainings and Chapter Support, which holds regular workshops to support local political education programs, develop DSA members' skill base, and connect chapters with experienced mentors
  • Events and Speakers, which hosts national political education events year-round on basic socialist ideas and critical issues in our current movement
  • Curriculum, which develops an expanding library of ready-to-use political education materials
  • Communications, which broadcasts and furthers our committee's work through social media, our podcast, and our newsletter
Chapters, national committees and working groups, and caucus steering committees (or equivalent) must email their nominee’s contact information (name, email address, and phone number) to politicaleducation@dsacommittees.org by Friday, 3/24. All DSA members interested in joining NPEC, whether nominated by a DSA body or applying as an individual, must apply via this form by Friday, 3/31. Appointments by the NPC will be announced by Sunday, 4/30 to begin their terms on Monday, 5/1.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to the Political Education Committee at politicaleducation@dsacommittees.org OR RSVP here to join us for one of two information sessions:
Sunday, March 12th 10-11am PT/1-2pm ET
Thursday, March 16th 5-6pm PT/8-9pm ET
