Plan of Organization – Proposed Change
The Central Committee is recommending a change to the Plan of Organization to be approved at the 2015 County Convention.
The 2016 Republican National Convention will be moving to an early date next year which will require all of the conventions (County, District and State) to be moved to earlier dates. As a result, the North Carolina Republican Party is directing that each county Plan of Organization be altered to reflect these date changes. In 2017, it is likely that the dates will be changed back to the current dates.
Instead of altering the Plan of Organization this year and possibly again next year, our Central Committee is recommending a change this year that will allow the NC Republican Party to specify date changes at any time without requiring Forsyth County to modify its Plan of Organization each time a date change may occur. Therefore, the Central Committee is recommending that this parenthetical statement be added to Article II.A.1 and Article III.B.1.a:
“(or any other date as required by the North Carolina Republican Party)”
If approved, each section will read, as follows:
Article – II – Precinct Organization
A. Annual Precinct Meetings
1. Call for Precinct Meeting
In every year, the County Chairman shall call Precinct Meetings during the months of February or March (or any other date as required by the North Carolina Republican Party) after giving 10 days written notice, as defined in Article V.I., to each Precinct Chairman, and by notice in a newspaper of a general circulation, as defined by Article V.A.4., and the Precinct Chairs shall also be informed as to the number of registered Republicans entitled to cast votes at the County Convention.
Article III – County Organization
A. Annual Convention
1. Call of Convention
a. A County Convention shall be called every year by the Chairman of the County Executive Committee, at a suitable location within the County, within the month of March (or any other date as required by the North Carolina Republican Party), at least 10 days prior to the scheduled District Convention, and following procedures in Article V.A.4.
Mark your calendars!

Michael Farris is co-founder and National Director of the Convention of States Project. He is also the founder of the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) and Patrick Henry College in Virginia. A lawyer by trade, he has argued many constitutional cases in state and federal courts. As a nationally recognized Constitutional scholar he has also argued an Article V case in front of the US Supreme Court.
This is a unique opportunity to hear Michael Farris discuss the state of our nation and why he believes that calling a convention of the states may be our last opportunity to take power back from the federal government that constitutionally belongs to the states or the people.
