Call Committee - Will Pace, Mike Hankins, Ed Yensho
This committee is tasked with formulating the draft 5th District Convention Call. It must ensure that the agenda of the Convention meets all requirements of the Party Plan and required business is satisfied related to: choosing Republican district representation for the 2020 Presidential Election - delegates to the Republican National Convention and one Elector; Congress (2020-22) - 5th Congressional District Republican congressional nominee; the State Party (2020-24) - 5th Congressional District representatives on the SCC; and District GOP Leadership (2020-22) - 5th Congressional District Republican Committee chairman.
The committee is made up of experienced chairmen of local Republican Committees, representing each of the 3 District Zones. The proposed Call will be reviewed by the entire 5thCDRC and voted on at our next regularly scheduled meeting (date TBD) before being formally issued by the 5thCDRC Chairman. A copy of the draft Convention Call will be sent out with the Call for Meeting to the 5thCDRC.
