Read this “Welcome to the convention” letter

(Exerpt from SD54 Republicans Convention Handbook)

By: Kellie Eigenheer, Chair, Convention Planning Committee

Welcome to our SD54 BPOU convention! We have a lot to accomplish today, so let’s get started…

First, I want to thank everyone on the convention planning committees who organized this event. Great job!

The doors at the convention site will open at 8:30 a.m. and we encourage you to arrive early. The convention starts at 9:00 a.m. sharp.

As you enter the convention site, head to the Registration tables. Sign in and get your name tag and your printed Convention Handbook. There is a $15 per person registration fee for everyone—delegates, alternates, and guests. Cash or checks only, please. This goes towards paying convention expenses.

After you register, grab a cup of coffee and a doughnut. Mingle with candidates who are eager to connect with you.

Add your name to the list of folks who want to be elected delegates to the CD conventions and State Convention. Add your name to the list of folks who want to be elected to the BPOU Executive Committee. Signup sheets are in the lobby.

Please finish your coffee and doughnut in the lobby, no food or drink is allowed in the convention auditorium.

In the auditorium, we ask that you sit in the area designated for your precinct. The room is split down the middle with precincts in District 54A on one side and District 54B on the other side. There will be signs at the ends of the rows, please double-check and make sure you are sitting in the correct row for your precinct.

As I mentioned, we have a lot to accomplish today: adopt a new constitution, endorse candidates for Senate and House, elect delegates and alternates for State Convention and for CD conventions, elect a new BPOU Executive Committee, and approve resolutions for the MNGOP Platform. Let’s work together to get this accomplished in a timely and efficient manner—the adjournment deadline is 3:00 p.m.

Lunch—we will not be providing lunch. A lunch break will be worked into the agenda. We encourage you to bring your own lunch or make plans to go out for a quick lunch. There will be a few lunch tables and chairs set up in the auditorium lobby. Please remember that no food or drink is allowed in the auditorium.

There are several vending machines located down the main hallway near the Commons area.

Again, welcome to the convention! This is an exciting day, we are going to get a lot accomplished today–have a good convention!
