Submit an Event for our Calendar and eNewsletter

Increase attendance at your event by listing it on the MCDCC website calendar!

All events submitted for the calendar will be featured in our weekly eNewsletter, distributed to thousands of Montgomery County Democrats every Friday morning.

To submit an event, email  communications@mcdcc.org.  See below for submission deadlines.

If your organization has an eNewsletter, please add communications@mcdcc.org to your distribution list so that we are automatically notified of your events.

Please include all relevant information* in your email:

  • Event title.
  • Sponsoring/host organization.
  • Day, date, and start/end time.
  • Event location/venue and address.
  • Brief event description.
  • Event image or logo, if one exists.
  • Cost (if any) and registration/RSVP information (if any).
  • Contact information.
  • Authority line for political fundraising events.

*  alternatively, if the event is listed on a social media page or website containing the above information, simply provide a link to the page or site.

The eNewsletter features events occurring up to 10 days after the eNewsletter publication date.  Events submitted sufficiently in advance of the event date are typically featured in the eNewsletter for two consecutive weeks.

Submission Guidelines

As a public information service to Montgomery County Democrats, we list events on our calendar of a political, civic, or government nature, and sponsored or hosted by official Democratic Party organizations, Democratic elected officials, Democratic candidates, allied political organizations, non-profit organizations, civic groups, business groups, or government entities. We are especially interested in listing any event at which an elected Democratic official or Democratic candidate is speaking, that may be of significant public interest, and/or for which public comment or input is sought. Our goal is to be as inclusive as possible; if you think your event is appropriate for our calendar, please submit!

We reserve the right to reject any submission deemed inappropriate at the sole discretion of the Montgomery County Democratic Central Committee or to change our submission guidelines at any time without notice.

Submission Deadline

We accept submissions on a rolling schedule, though we encourage you to submit your event as far in advance as possible to provide the greatest possible exposure for your event.  Submissions received by 5 pm Tuesday will be included in the eNewsletter published on Friday of the same week. If you miss the deadline, submit anyway. We will do our best (though we cannot promise) to include in the eNewsletter those submissions received after the deadline.

Disclaimer

The calendar is populated and the eNewsletter is published by smart, dedicated, hard-working volunteer Democrats (one of whom, perhaps unsurprisingly, wrote this sentence). We do our best to include every submitted event and feature it correctly, but we are human, we make mistakes, and we are subject to the limits of available time.  If we fail to list an event or we make an error in an event listing, it pains us as much as it pains you.  Please accept our apologies in advance.  We simply cannot guarantee that every submitted event will appear in the calendar or the eNewsletter, though when we do miss the mark, we appreciate being (politely) informed of our errors or omissions.

Very truly yours,
