Actually, there are 440 - not 240 - members, contrary to some press reports. They get to elect the new chair early next year.
From the official DNC site:
While anyone who is registered to vote as a Democrat is a member of the Party, there are 440 members of the Democratic National Committee....
Each jurisdiction is represented by its Chair and the next highest ranking officer of the opposite sex. An additional 200 votes are distributed to the states and territories based on population, with each receiving a minimum of two additional seats. Each delegation must be equally divided between men and women....
Who are these 440 people? Well, Donna Brazile, Harold Ickes, and Tom Vilsack are all on the list. Howard Dean and Bill Clinton are not. Can someone who is not a member be elected as chair? Probably a formality, but I don't know.
Keep reading for the DNC members in your state.
UPDATE: I've added a copy of this to the dKosopedia as Democratic National Committee.
