Much needs to be accomplished as we work to protect our largest majorities in Michigan in over 50 years. I believe the 2014 Election is THE Election for Michigan. The results of this election will affect us for decades as we secure the agenda of the Governor and the reinvention of our state.
In as much as we are taking a fresh look at all of our operations at MRP, we have organized and will be offering a special training session around our spring state committee meeting. This training session will focus on educating and empowering our grassroots. The Michigan Republican Party will be underwriting the costs of this event to ensure that everyone is able to join us and rally as one unified party.
Our Spring Training Session and State Committee Meeting will be held Friday, May 10 and Saturday, May 11 at Boyne Mountain in Boyne Falls. Training sessions will take place on both Friday evening and Saturday morning on a variety of topics including technology, messaging, and coalition outreach. We will also be hosting a dinner on Friday night. We are trying to book a live band and/or guest speaker for dinner. A tentative agenda for all of these events is attached to this email.
As mentioned above, the Michigan Republican Party will be covering the cost of the conference and meals associated with the conference. The only cost to you will be your overnight room and any incidental costs for additional food/beverages and resort activities.
Below is information on the room block that we have set up with Boyne Mountain Resort along with additional options should we sell out the Boyne Mountain block or if you prefer alternative accommodations. Boyne has indicated that they will honor the discounted rates we have arranged for “shoulder nights,” meaning if you wish to come up early or stay an extra night, you may do so at the rate listed below.
