The conference convenes Friday, July 19, and Saturday, July 20 under the banner, “United We Stand.” Speakers include Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas), a dynamic new senator who doesn’t mind shaking up party elders, and Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal. Popular talk show host Herman Cain and Louisiana State Sen. Elbert Guillory are on the program.
Republican National Committee co-chair Sharon Day will join Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.), Florida radio host and Republican women’s president for the Sunshine State Cindy Graves, and a host of other activists, elected officials and creatives on the dais.
“We can no longer sit back and watch our party separate from within itself. It is time to unite and find commonality within our party and those from outside who agree,” said Lisa Roper, NFRW 4th vice president and Region 7 director. “It is our hope that this conference will give everyone a platform to be heard and learn from others who are making strides from within our communities.”
The Georgia Federation of Republican Women is hosting the meeting. “Our guest speakers show the diversity we already know we have within the party and we are eager to continue building new relationships,” said Rose Wing, GFRW president.
The Friday agenda includes afternoon sessions on campaign strategy nuts and bolts and a reception. Saturday features a roundtable with GOP chairs and RNC representatives and brunch.
The Georgia Federation of Republican Women website has complete details about the regional summer conference.
The National Federation of Republican Women website features information about the national convention in September.
Disclosure: I will participate in a panel on campaign strategy nuts and bolts on Friday afternoon. I am honored to be invited to be part of this critical meeting.
