Wil Westholm, our YR State Chair, wanted me to pass on these two important items:
I know this is really late notice if anybody would like to attend, but the Young Republican National Federation (YRNF) is pleased to invite you to the 2008 YR Leadership Conference (YRLC), "R GENERATION", in Washington, D.C. from April 30-May 4. There will be numerous national Republican leaders speaking at this conference and special private tours of the White House are being offered.
The early registration deadline for this is APRIL 11. If you are interested in attending this conference, please visit http://www.yrlc2008.net/ order to register. This will be a very exciting conference and training seminar to attend during this very exciting election year.
Anybody who has skills in film or vodeo making, we want you to be involved in our nationwide YR initiative to make short video segments explaining why you are Republicans. The YRNF will use some of these videos at the upcoming YRLC in DC. Please submit your video by April 12 if possible if you want your video to be played at the YRLC. This video submission campaign is meant to use social networking and video to reach out to young voters.
This from Karen Sautter and our very own Wil Westholm who are leading this video campaign:
Recognizing that young people will be key in the upcoming election, we developed a concept called "This is my Party" that features YRs in videos talking about why they are proud to be Republican. We believe that young voters will identify with our Party if we make it clear what we stand for and allow that message to resonate. But we need YRs to take ownership of this campaign and make videos of themselves to communicate our message.
