Rochester Eagle's Club
917 15th Avenue SE
Our essential agenda items are electing twelve officers (of our Executive committee), electing our representatives to the MN GOP Central committee, electing 2-year At-Large members of our Central committee, and amending our Constitution.
Our Nominating committee provides us a starting list (i.e., "slate") of candidates for all those positions. It is — or will be — included below, in the Materials. Nominations will be open at the convention, to allow any interested individual an opportunity to be a candidate.
There is a non-refundable $15 early registration fee for Delegates and Alternates to help us cover our costs. Guests may attend for $10 each. At-the-door registration for Delegates is $20 but it stays $15 for Alternates (as we understand their conundrum for only being seated in case of delegate absences). Delegates and Alternates can register online or via USPS mail postmarked by Wednesday, February 13. To register by mail: print, complete, and send the call (in your hand or from the link, below) with your check.
The Eagle's Club has a full bar, good popcorn, and a menu from which we are welcome — and encouraged — to order. Our requested setup is seating at (straight) tables so our hands will be free and our laps should not be bothered by crumbs and mustard.
Below, we have copies of convention documents for your perusal. They'll get filled in as they become available. All are subject to change until reproduced for the convention. Participants need not be familiar with these documents before arriving at the convention but it helps. The seated delegates debate, amend, and approve them (except for the Call) before they are final.
