Thank you for your interest in the work of the Platform Process Review Committee (PPRC).
The platform process is vital to the life of a political party. It is the mechanism by which the organization develops a statement of beliefs and a framework for its actions. A party is defined by its platform; as a tool, it is what helps communicate its message to others in order to win elections and grow the party.
The PPRC is tasked with reviewing both the structure of the next RPT platform and the process by which it will be adopted at the 2016 RPT State Convention. To do so, we will be gathering input from the grassroots as to how to make this document the very best and most meaningful it can be.
It is not the purpose of this committee to address specific content, such as issues or platform planks, as this is the purview of the delegates at the 2016 RPT State Convention.
We invite you to take a few moments to complete our online survey, which can be found here:
We would sincerely appreciate your participation in this survey, as we are building a library of ideas put forth by grassroots Republicans across the state. Your input is valuable to us, and we look forward to hearing from you!
