The Winnetka Caucus

What is The Winnetka Caucus?

The Winnetka Caucus system, a non-partisan democratic system, was founded in 1915, to gather and apply resident input to the Village, Parks, Schools, and Library districts. All voting-age residents of theVillage of Winnetka are members of the Caucus. 

What is the Winnetka Caucus Council?

The Winnetka Caucus Council (WCC) is the representative body of the Winnetka Caucus, comprised of volunteers from our community.

It is the primary conduit for all residents to express their opinions through brief surveys on pending Village policy decisions, and a broad annual survey on important Village issues.

Survey results and public comments are reported to the local governing Boards – Village Council, Parks, Schools, Library, and New Trier High School.

How does the Winnetka Caucus Council interface with the Winnetka Caucus?

The WCC hosts two annual town meetings. At the Spring Open Meeting, local Board Presidents report on current issues and progress with Caucus Platform implementation. At the Annual Town Meeting, candidates for local office are vetted and slated for election, and survey platforms are discussed and approved.

Who Serves on the Winnetka Caucus Council?

The WCC is comprised of up to 68 volunteer Members from our community. Each Member serves a term of up to 3 years in duration. Any voting-age resident who has lived in Winnetka for over 1 year, or lives within the Winnetka Park District or Winnetka-Northfield Library District, is eligible to serve. Terms are staggered in order to continually bring in fresh ideas and talents while retaining a degree of continuity. If you wish to serve on the WCC, please let us know by visiting our website at
