Join us August 8th – 9th in Dallas for the 2014 State Convention!
Come represent your Young Republican chapter and network with leaders from over 20 chapters across the state as we elect our 2014-2015 statewide officers, pass resolutions, and consider changes to the state federation’s constitution. We will have great political training, an excellent line up of speakers, and tons of fun!
We have worked hard to keep costs low this year, and we are excited to announce that the event will be held at the Hilton Anatole near downtown Dallas at a rate of $99 / night for a double bed room.
The regular registration rate is only $80 per person till July 17th, which includes our gala Saturday evening. After July 17th, the late registration rate will be $100.
