The Divisional structure provides a way for sustainable and effective volunteer placement and engagement. Divisions have the freedom to make the necessary decisions to carry out their mission while having role clarity within the party as a whole. When tied with vision and motivated leadership, this structure will help your party run more effectively. You can download the template for all divisions and role descriptions below.
