Texas Republicans, please join us — in person or online — for the 4th quarterly SREC meeting!
This will be the first meeting where a new electronic voting system will be in use by SREC members.

If you were a delegate to convention, you helped elect 2 members from your district to the SREC — the State Republican Executive Committee — to run the Republican Party of Texas. The SREC holds quarterly meetings to conduct party business. You are invited to observe as a guest or watch the livestream.

This is a chance for you to connect with the people you elected, see what decisions are being made, and give input. On Friday you can watch committee meetings, and on Saturday listen to the reports, votes, new business, and more.
