Established in 1981, Santa Clara County Democratic Club (SCCDC) is a progressive organization dedicated to informing voters, encouraging citizen involvement in the political process, and promoting Democratic Party values and candidates.We draw our membership from all over Santa Clara County and it includes many current and former elected officials.
We hold ten monthly General Meetings at Harry’s Hofbrau in San Jose the third Monday of the month from 7 to 9 PM, which are open to the public. We also sponsor a summer event and a holiday dinner.
The Executive Board
The SCCDC Executive Board, elected by the membership annually at the November General Meeting for a one year term, includes Club Officers and Members at Large. Between General Meetings the Executive Board performs duties necessary for the proper administration of the affairs of SCCDC consistent with the Constitution and Bylaws. The Executive Board meets the 4th Wednesday of each month at 7pm at the Headen-Inman House in Santa Clara and is open to all SCCDC members.
