On Thursday, June 25, 2009, the Republican National Committee
kicked off its Women’s Program with the first annual Women’s
Summit, held at the Capitol Hill Club in Washington, DC. The
mission of the RNC Women’s Program is to recruit, register, train
and sustain a strong base of women activists and candidates to
build the Republican Party, portray the GOP as the automatic option
for female voters and win elections.
Over 300 women from across the country attended the Summit. They
were nominated to attend by their RNC Members or their Members of
Congress and are leaders within their state parties, volunteers who
continue to shine throughout each election cycle and new supporters
who are interested in expanding their role within the Party. The
RNC is counting on these women to implement the goals of the
Women’s Program within their states and territories and to be the
face of the Program across the country.
Over the course of the day, participants heard from talented and
informed speakers, including pollsters, Members of Congress,
Republican candidates and leaders from the Republican National
Committee, National Republican Congressional Committee and National
Republican Senatorial Committee. Panels and presentations included
information on polling, legislative issues, new media practices and
discussion surrounding the vision for the future of the GOP.
Additionally, attendees had the ability to network with Republican
women from around the country and to hear about Co-Chairman
Larimer’s plans for the RNC Women’s Program.
