    July 2016 Central Committee Meeting

    As many of our leadership team will be away in Cleveland at the National Convention, this months Central Committee Meeting is going to be a Training Meeting.

    Doesn't matter if you're a brand new PCP or if you're one who has been around awhile, one thing that is always changing is technology and the tools we use.

    I will first be giving an overview of all the electronic tools we utilize and their interaction with the different committees. Then I will be covering the basic use of GOP Data Center, the tool we use to look up voters, create call and walking lists and update voter information. If you are already signed up and have a login, you can bring your laptop if you like and follow along.

    Access to the system and login credentials can only be obtained by requesting it via the counties designated administrator (Me) who then submits your request to the State Party for activation. The process takes a couple of days. Make your requests via email to vice-chair@marioncountygop.org

    If we have time I will also cover the basic use of other tools such as NationBuilder and SharePoint.

For two Marion County Republicans that was not a question too difficult to answer.

    Everyone Loves a Parade

Bill Post, and Marion County Commissioners Kevin Cameron and Sam Brentano — in their celebrity Corvette convertibles near the front of the procession, Denise Quinn Nanke was spotted with "Gator's Radio Experience" co-host Gator Gaynor in the KYKN-1430AM van.
