Republican Liberty Caucus

Central Florida to host 2017 RLC National Biennial Convention

Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) activists from throughout the country will converge Saturday, May 27th in Orlando at the Rosen Centre Hotel for the 2017 Biennial RLC National Convention. The convention will feature activist training, more than a dozen speakers and multiple information packed panels.

Delegate Deadline: 2/26

As we recently announced, our national convention is set to be held this upcoming Memorial Day Weekend at the Rosen Centre in Orlando Florida. Per RLC bylaws, any and all members of the Republican Liberty Caucus are automatically permitted to be delegates representing their respective states (as long as it is already chartered) but must have their dues paid at least 90 days before the convention takes place. That deadline is approaching in just a few days so it is urgent that you join NOW at www.RLC.org/join
