Committees

NYC Democratic Socialists of America is a democratic organization run by its members.

The highest decision-making body is the annual convention. Between conventions, NYC-DSA is led as a chapter by the Steering Committee (SC) and Citywide Leadership Committee (CLC) composed of members elected from the various NYC-DSA branches.

Branches are members' home base in NYC-DSA. Branches are responsible for recruitment, mobilizing for NYC-DSA events and actions, and providing political education to members as well as nonmembers in their area. They should also run social events to build community. Most importantly they are where debate and discussion can take place to shape the politics and strategy of the chapter.

The Organizing Committees (OCs) are elected by their branches. They are responsible for organizing the activities of their branch and running branches' mobilizer systems.

The campaign Working Groups (WGs) are responsible for creating and working on long-term campaigns and projects that are endorsed by the convention or the Steering Committee. Functional working groups provide support to NYC-DSA in specific ways. If they are large enough, working groups might have an organizing committee that leads them. Some working groups meet in borough sections.
