Partorg (Russian: Парторг, from партийный организатор, partiyny organizator, "party organizer") was a person appointed by the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union to work at important places: larger plants, construction sites, kolkhozes, institutions, etc. The position was introduced in 1933. The duties of a partorg were political work and supervision of the execution of plans in production, procurement, etc. Usually they were recommended to be elected secretaries of the bureaus of local partkoms.[1] Informally, the terms "partorg" and "partkom secretary" were used interchangeably.

Notice the difference of the position of partorg from that of party organizer in some other parties.
