State Central Committee
The DFL State Central Committee
The State Central Committee (SCC) is the governing body of the Minnesota DFL Party between State Conventions, which occur every two years. The central committee meets three to four times a year. Its membership includes the State Executive Committee, 50 at-large members, ten elected officials, the chairs and vice-chairs of each senate district, and representatives elected from local party units. The State Central Committee operates under the party’s official documents and the State Central Committee Standing Rules. For matters not covered by those rules, the State Central Committee is governed by Robert’s Rules of Order.
The next SCC meeting will be held virtually via Zoom on Saturday, May 22.
Committee members and alternates will receive official notice of the meeting, including Zoom access information, the agenda, and other materials in May.

– Grant charters to DFL outreach organizations and endorsement power to DFL community caucuses
– Modify the Action Agenda
