In 2020, the IDCCA launched a statewide Virtual Training Series (VTS) to help train County Chairs, Precinct Committeepersons, Volunteers, & Candidates throughout Illinois. The VTS is an hour long session that connects grassroots Democrats with elected officials & politicos to help build their organizations.

All trainings start at 6pm (unless otherwise noted). The training will last around an hour with a 15 minute Q&A session at the end.
