All:

This is your 3rd notice of your official call for TYRF’s 4th Quarter Board Meeting.  We now have as guest speakers:

 

Congressman Kevin Brady

(Had to fly back to DC to work on the Fiscal Cliff Issue)

State Rep Cecil Bell

RPT Outreach Director David Zapata

The hotel block reserved for $89.95 a night has expired – but the hotel isn’t very expensive anyway.  See the accommodations section below to book your room.

The 4th Quarter Board Meeting is on Saturday, December 1, 2012 at The Woodlands.  Our board meetings are open to all YR members to attend.  The meeting will take place at the conference facilities at the Drury Inn & Suites located at 28099 I-45 North, The Woodlands, TX 77380. The Montgomery County Young Republicans are excited to be hosting us at this board meeting.

All Clubs are required to present a report at this meeting summarizing your activities since the last board meeting.  The report can be as short or as long as you like, and can be given in person at the meeting, or emailed prior to the meeting to Secretary Smith, at [email protected]texasyoungrepublicans.com  All club presidents, the TYRF Executive Committees, and certain appointed positions, have votes at this board meeting.  Any person who would have two votes at this meeting by virtue of being both a club president and a TYRF officer, must delegate their club’s vote to another member of their club by notifying Kristen Smith of their appointee prior to  the meeting, in order to preserve you club’s vote.
