September Conservative Forum
We extend special thanks to our guest panelists at our September Conservative Forum: Melvin EversonChris Perlera, and Meredith Hardin. The program was a panel discussion on the subject, "What Is Conservatism?"

We talk about expecting our elected officials to vote like conservatives, and we claim the political viewpoint, but do we know what conservatism really is? This was a good opportunity to talk about our core principles and their foundations. Josh Morris, Vice Chair for Communications, the final panelist, guided the topics of this event.

The entire discussion was about an hour long with great participation from the audience. The 12-minute video above highlights some of the key points of the day. Thanks to Paul Stanley for the video recording.

There are many topics we did not have time to cover in this one meeting, and we hope to cover more in future discussions. These will serve to remind us of our roots from time-to-time.
Georgia GOP State Convention - May 2013
The Hall County Republican Party was well represented on May 17-18 at the State Republican Convention. We were allotted 48 total delegate spots. 35 elected delegates attended, and 8 alternates in attendace were elevated for a total voting strength of 43. We sincerely appreciate all who came and represented Hall County Republicans. Our goal is to have a full delegation present at the 2015 convention.

We congratulate the new chairman of the Georgia Republican PartyJohn Padgett, as well as all others elected to the executive committee. We look forward to working together with them to win elections, to promote Republican principles, and to continually improve our party over the next two years.
