Every February, the New York Young Republican Club hosts our most
special event of the year. We hold our Ronald Reagan Birthday
Celebration and Awards Reception, where we pay tribute to the man who
has inspired so many of us to become active in the fight for liberty.

3. Republican Reform Summit
On Tuesday, January 11, 2005 a group of grassroots republican leaders
from across New York City and surrounding areas will gather to discuss
the future of the New York Republican Party. After the debacle of the
Mills campaign - with the GOP's hand-picked nominee giving Sen. Charles
Schumer the largest margin of victory in a Senate race in NY History -
the Democrats gaining control of many former Republican strongholds
like Nassau and Westchester counties, and the state GOP's disconnect
with local activists, many leaders have come to the same conclusion -
that a major shake-up is needed to the get the party back on track. If
you are interested in attending, please email our chairman at
RobertH@nycyr.org to rsvp or with any questions.
