TEXAS YOUNG REPUBLICANS CLUB DEVELOPMENT GUIDE

Hi, I’m Jorge Villarreal, and I am in charge of helping new clubs become federated with the Texas Young Republicans.

These resources are to be used to help new and existing TYRF chapters grow and flourish. We are an official auxiliary of the Republican Party of Texas and affiliated with the Young Republican National Federation. Our clubs are very active, and there are many reasons for and benefits to starting a young republican chapter:

Benefits of and reasons for starting a Young Republican chapter:

  • Host local political events, candidate forums, policy/issue forums, speakers…..
  • Educate millennials about conservatism and Republican politics
  • Get plugged-in to campaigns, local and state Republican politics
  • Networking with local and statewide activists and leaders.
  • Register voters
  • Invitations to exclusive political events
  • Social events and happy hours
  • Attend state and national board meetings.
  • Political and grassroots training
  • Hold service events
  • Run for public office

If you have any questions or suggestions, please email joravillarreal@gmail.com and cc the state chairman at chairman@texasyr.gop, (214) 642-2114

1) GETTING STARTED

One of the first steps you will need to take when you begin organizing a new club is to enlist help from as many sources as possible. TYRF will happily help, but you will also find that local activists in your area are willing to help as well.

Your county Republican Party Chairman will usually spread the word about a new club. If you are unsure who your county chairman is, click on the button below to find their contact info.

Each senate district has a Republican Party committeeman and committeewoman. Please make sure to reach out to them as well. Click on the SREC button and find out who represents you.

2) ORGANIZING

After you have recruited 10 members, you will need to turn in a constitution, roster of members, and chartering fees. Below are samples for you to use. You will need to make sure the TYRF State Secretary, State Chairman, and Club Development Director has received a copy of the roster and club constitution. Please contact us for how to submit chartering fees.

3) MARKETING

Once you have organized your club and are officially chartered, you will need a logo for your club. Our Marketing Director, Chris Bingham, and our graphics designer Patience Larimer will be able to provide you a logo for your club at no charge. You can see an example of the logo he will create here and also here. Simply email him the name of the club and it will be created and sent to you in all necessary formats. We ask that clubs use round/button concepts for their logos. Please allow for at least a week’s turn around after request.
