The National Advisory Councils are part of the RNC’s unprecedented commitment to engage voters year-round to build a lasting foundation for future campaigns. Council members will lend their expertise in developing better, more effective engagement strategies between the RNC and state parties and communities across the country. In addition to providing advice and counsel to RNC leadership and staff, National Advisory Council members will attend community events, speak with grassroots activists nationwide, and attend RNC meetings. To complement the work of the three National Advisory Councils, the RNC is working with state parties to form state advisory councils as well.
“I want to ensure the Republican Party is building sincere relationships in every community across the country, and our advisory councils will help make that a reality,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “They are all leaders in their communities, and each council member brings a unique perspective. I look forward to working with them to grow the Republican Party.”
