Each year, the Ann Arbor Democratic Party hosts approx. 9 general membership mtgs held every second Saturday of the month (excluding August and special occasions); 1 annual mtg in December; 12 exec cmte mtgs; 3 major fundraisers (chili cook-off, an elegant gala, Labor Day picnic); numerous candidate forums; and approx. 7 mixers to support local Ann Arbor businesses.

General membership mtgs typically include: breakfast, guest speakers, resolutions, elected official and candidate remarks, reports, and announcements. Two of our general membership mtgs are UNITY meetings done in cooperation with our good friends from the Washtenaw County Democratic Party.

The Ann Arbor Democratic Party also sends delegations to numerous Congressional District Party, Washtenaw County Democratic Party, Michigan Democratic Party, and Democratic National Committee events. Each year, the Ann Arbor Dems participate in numerous local community events (Water Hill music festival, NAACP Juneteenth celebration, Ann Arbor Jaycees July 4th parade, Ann Arbor Art Fair).
