2022 Convention 2022 Convention

We're not just a group...WE ARE THE MOVEMENT! Kick off your July 4th weekend the right way by celebrating our individual liberty.

About this event

The New Hanover RLC is the Conscience of the New Hanover County Republican Party. Our growing movement recognizes that the GOP desperately needs to return to its historical values of individual liberty, limited and fiscally responsible government, and absolute fidelity to our state and federal Constitutions. We invite you to join us for our 2nd biennial Convention on Saturday, July 2, 2022. While we certainly hope that you are already a member, you are certainly welcome to become a member by signing up online or in-person at the Convention. Although you must be a registered Republican to serve as on officer or executive committee member, Republican party affiliation is not a requirement to become a full voting member. Even, if you are unsure if you want to become a member right now, our Convention will be open to the public, as we encourage you to join the festivities!

This is a luncheon convention. The convention fee is only $20 and includes provided pizza, wings, appetizers, and soft drinks. A full bar is available to those who wish to purchase alcoholic beverages.

Besides voting for new officers and members of our Executive Committee and performing business, we are happy to welcome three great guest speakers.
