From Sue Everhart:
I am excited to announce that in just one month, the 2012 Georgia Republican Party Convention Cycle will begin! The largest-scale organization of Republicans across Georgia each year, the convention cycle will ultimately culminate with the 2012 GAGOP State Convention in Columbus, GA. Whether you are a GOP grassroots veteran or a first-time Republican looking to get involved, the convention process is the catalyst to Republican victories each and every year.
Mass Precinct Meetings – February 18, 2012
The GAGOP Mass Precinct Meetings, held on Saturday, February 18, are the first step in the convention process. Here, members of each county with a population of at least 80,000 will caucus with their respective voter precincts and will ultimately elect Delegates and Alternates from each precinct to the upcoming County Conventions.
For more information on your county’s mass precinct meeting, please contact your GAGOP County Chairman by clicking here.
Please note: Counties with populations under 80,000 will host their Mass Precinct Meetings immediately before their County Conventions on March 10.
County Party Conventions – March 10, 2012
The Georgia Republican Party County Conventions are the next step in the convention process, and will be held on Saturday, March 10. Each County GOP will hold their convention on this day, and will elect their Delegates and Alternates to both the District and State Conventions. If you would like to be a Delegate to either the GAGOP District or State Convention, you must be elected at the County Convention.

District Party Conventions – April 14, 2012
Taking place on Saturday, April 14, the Georgia Republican Party District Conventions are the third step in the convention process. Here, each of Georgia’s 14 Congressional District Parties will elect three (3) Delegates and three (3) alternates to the Republican National Convention in Tampa Bay, Florida.

State Convention – May 18-19, 2012
The Georgia Republican Party State Convention will be held on the weekend of May 18th and 19th, 2012, in Columbus, GA. Among the official business to be conducted, Delegates at the State Convention will elect 31 Delegates At-Large and 31 Alternates At-Large to the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa Bay, Florida. In addition, State Convention Delegates will elect a Republican National Committeeman and a Republican National Committeewoman to represent Georgia on a four-year term.
The Republican National Convention will be held in Tampa Bay, Florida on August 27-30.
Known as our “Steps to Serve,” the GAGOP Convention Process is the springboard to involvement in the Georgia Republican Party. I encourage you all to contact your County and District Chairmen to find out more about how you can become an integral part of our team. Who knows – maybe you could even be the deciding vote for our next Republican Presidential Nominee from the floor of the National Convention!
Thank you for all that you do, and all that you will continue to do, to foster and grow our Republican Majority across Georgia. We could not be where we are today without your tireless efforts and lasting dedication, and I am truly grateful.
All my best,
Sue P. Everhart, Chairman
