Starting a College Republican Chapter

  1. 1. Starting a Chapter The Voice of Young Conservatives Eleven Easy Steps to Starting a College Republican Chapter Step 1. Check the College Republican National Committee chapter map at www.crnc.org/ findyourchapter to see if a College Republican chapter currently exists at your school. Step 2. Find five (5) classmates to form your executive board and help you start a club. Positions on an executive board typically include a Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer, Secretary, Executive Director and Recruitment Director. Step 3. Have each member of your executive board find five (5) people willing to join the club and participate in club meetings, events and activities by signing up with their first name, last name, email address and cell phone number. Step 4. Find a faculty member willing to sponsor and advise the club. Good places to look for a faculty advisor are political science, economics, business, agriculture and fire safety departments. Step 5. Draft a club constitution, which will state the club’s mission, purpose and govern activities such as elections and officer duties. Model Chapter Constitution. Step 6. Contact your state’s College Republican Federation by visiting www.crnc.org/leaders. Step 7. From the contact information your executive board collected, create an organization email account ([your school]collegerepublicans@gmail.com), create a Facebook group and create a text messaging list. Step 8. Apply to become an officially recognized student group with your school. If you follow steps 1-7, most, if not all, of the tasks required to become an officially recognized student group will likely have already been completed. Step 9. Plan your club’s first meeting. Pick a location, date, time and set an agenda. It’s also good to have an interesting, motivational speaker and food at your first meeting. Step 10.
