Finalists will be visited after the Thanksgiving holiday and a final decision will be made as soon as possible. The 5thCDRC has already authorized the Chairman to move forward with a contract with the best suited location.


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. 


Committee on Delegate Processing
- Marian Dixon (5thCDRC Treasurer), Aaron Moyer (5thCDRC Secretary), and Call Committee

This committee is tasked with reviewing and proposing forms and processes to ensure that convention delegates have easy access to information; that forms are clear and uniform across the District, capture all required data required by the Party and the State and Federal Election Commissions, and that each Unit Committee can quickly and accurately report their credentialed delegates to the candidates and the 5thCDRC.

The committee makeup is designed to ensure a convergence of the technical details of data collection and reporting with the regulatory requirements of the Convention Call.
