The State Party
The Democratic Party of Georgia (DPG), is the official Democratic Party organization of the state of Georgia. Georgia Democrats are a diverse group with over 300 elected State Committee Members (Voting Members) and more than 4,000 core stakeholders statewide. These include: Democratic Elected Officials; State Committee Members; County Committee Members; advisory caucuses; affiliate groups; grassroots activists and donors.
Committee members are elected by their County Democratic Committee to serve four-year terms. DPG Officers are elected by State Committee Members and also serve four-year terms.
The party is a volunteer-based organization that relies primarily on financial donations to fund party work. Under the direction of the elected chair, executive committee, and executive director, the party employs a professional staff to serve the larger organization throughout the year.
