Letter from the Chairman - State Convention
Dear Wyoming Republicans,
I hope this letter finds each and every one of you safe and healthy.
It’s time to get the word out that the Wyoming Republican Party has been creating contingency plans to deal with all the changes related to the COVID-19 virus and related concerns. Much like our counterparts in the Republican National Committee, the executive team of your state party has been demo’ing options and making plans to continue the business of the party while remaining in offices and homes in small numbers.
So far two county conventions have successfully taken place using virtual meeting technology.
The Wyoming Republican Party Communications Director (Trinity Lewis) has conducted a number of trainings for these online meetings and dozens have participated to learn the new and temporary protocols. Please contact your respective county Chairman to ensure your participation either as county convention delegate or guest.
Currently, two plans are in place to hold the Wyoming Republican Party state convention May 7-9 2020. Most of you are aware of the original plans released by both press conference and website. In addition, a contingency plan has been formed which includes a virtual meeting with the ability to conduct some or all of the agenda business May 9 only, while evaluating a future date for finishing convention business face-to-face.
We all know the situation is fluid and ask for your diligence and patience.
Meanwhile the leadership team at the RNC, Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and Co-Chair Tommy Hicks, are working tirelessly with President Trump to keep our party and nation on track as well as our national convention this August. During a phone call today with Co-Chair Hicks, he related that President Trump knows exactly what is going on in this country and the President will continue to do everything he can. Please see included link regarding an update for the Republican national convention in Charlotte, North Carolina this summer.
May we all take advantage of this renewed time with our families and opportunity to focus on our timeless Republican values and priorities.
God Bless Wyoming,
W Frank Eathorne
Chairman, Wyoming Republican Party
