Delegates and Alternates elected at the February 2012 precinct caucus should plan to attend our 2013 Convention. Note that Redistricting does not affect your delegate/alternate status for this convention.
The convention is now scheduled for February 23, 2013. (It was rescheduled from February 9 due to the 19A special election.) The official convention call will be mailed to Delegates and Alternates no later than February 12. If you wish, you may reply to this email and tell us not to mail you a call to save printing and mailing costs. The convention starts at 9:00 a.m. Registration opens at 8:30 a.m. and closes at 10:00 a.m.
The convention will be held at the Blue Earth County Republicans office on the first floor of Mankato Place in the former Maverick 4 Theater. The address is 12 Civic Center Plaza, Suite 1640, Mankato. (Note that this is NOT inside the Verizon Wireless Center!) Mankato Place interior map (.pdf)
The convention fee is $15, and includes coffee and rolls in the morning and pizza for lunch. (Menu subject to change.) The convention fee may be paid at the door with cash or check, or online by clicking the "Buy Now" button at the bottom of this page.
Convention business includes but is not limited to a Constitution Committee Report, Election of Executive Committee Officers, and the election of Second Alternates to the District and State Conventions.
