To all ye Democrats, a message from “King of the Dems” Ben Florsheim ’14: the College Democrats of Connecticut are hosting their yearly convention right on our home turf this Saturday, September 29th! Here’s the scoop:

The CDCT Annual Convention will be a great way for students to learn valuable campaign skills and to meet / hear from other Democratic students and elected officials. Among other things, there will be a “Campaign 101” training session, various speakers (such as local and state officials, campaign workers, etc.) and then door knocking for Chris Murphy, Connecticut’s Democratic candidate for US Senate.

Additionally, if you are interested in running for a leadership position in CDCT, such as President, Vice-President, Secretary or Treasurer, email Ben for more information. And last, but certainly not least: free lunch and dinner will be provided for all attendees!
