Demcratic National Committee
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is the principal organization governing the United States Democratic Party on a day-to-day basis. While it is responsible for overseeing the process of writing a platform every four years, the DNC's central focus is on campaign and political activity in support of Democratic Party candidates, and not on public policy.

National Education Association
"United States labor union committed to advancing the cause of public education" (www.nea.org)
"A party manager in a legislative body who secures attendance for voting and directs other members.” The House Majority Whip (or Chief Whip if you prefer the British version) must ensure that members of his party show up to vote on important matters. As an extension of this, the whip knows the happenings of his party members’ lives and how to find them (and discipline them if needed). If there are disagreements or altercations between party members, it falls on the whip to mediate the situation to help ensure the party’s political success." (Dictionary.com)
