Communications and Media Team
The Communications and Media Team works to provide timely information internally and externally through a variety of means. This include managing social media account, sending mass emails, and developing content for the website and other digital platforms (including creation of graphics). This team is critical for creating and promoting the WCDP brand.
Lead: Kate Bixler, Third Vice Chair
Data Analytics Committee
The Data Analytics Committee organizes gathered data in order to provide meaningful conclusions to WCDP. WCDP gets a wide array of information from a wide range of sources: voter turnout, canvassing results, Google Analytics, surveys. This team is critical to making sense of that information to move forward strategically and ensuring that volunteer leaders are able to communicate the results and the ensuing strategies in a compelling way.
Lead: Sarah Leehr
Data Management Corps
The Data Management Corps (DMC) manages WCDP’s “voter files” in our database: VoteBuilder. This includes maintaining up-to-date contact information such as name, phone number, address, etc, as well as tracking activity of voters and volunteers’ efforts to reach them. The DMC works directly with Precinct Chairs, District Coordinators, and other Committees to provide outreach lists and other information to match project needs.
