New Member Recruitment: Phone “Party” on 3/26

The Recruitment Committee is planning big things! We’re going to be reaching out to active young democrats who are not FCYD members and invite them to our upcoming fundraiser/membership drive.  Our first phone “party” will take place on Tuesday, March 26th at 6pm at ODP.

Mark your calendars FCYD PAC Kickoff Event

Mark your calendars for our first fundraiser of the year.  It will take place on April 24, from 5:30-7:30pm at the Short North Tavern. Free beer and appetizers will be provided. The event will cost $20 and will cover your dues for the next 12 months.  We’re also going to have a DUES SPECIAL at the event that you’ll want to take advantage of:  if you are under 35, you and a friend can attend the event AND each receive a year-long FCYD membership for the price of one attendee (aka BOGO!!)
