Karen Kenney, who heads the San Fernando Valley Patriots is going to be our featured speaker on Tuesday, September 6th.  She is going to speak on the same topic our original speaker, Michael Alexander was going to speak on, the Tea Party Agenda.

While the San Fernando Valley Patriots is made up not only of Republicans, but also Independents and some Democrats, Karen is a Republican who serves on the 40th Assembly District Republican Central Committee.  

Karen has done a great job in organizing the San Fernando Valley Patriots, and they have been very active in the San Fernando Valley.

Questions and AnswersWhat's on your mind?

In addition to our speaker, we are going to have a Townhall Forum Discussion.  There is a lot going on in the world, in our country, our state and our county.  You must have some questions.  Others will have answers.
We are going to spend part of our meeting asking and answering questions you have, or generally discussing current issues.  It will be a chance for you to either get your questions answered, or to express your opinion.  We are looking forward to a lively discussion.

CRP Convention - September 16-18  
CRP Fall Convention 2011

Fall Convention is in Los Angeles at the JW Marriott at L.A. Live, Downtown. 

A message from the Chairman of the California Republican Party, Tom Del Beccaro:  


Dear Fellow Republican,


L.A. Live
L. A. Live - Downtown Los Angeles

On behalf of the California Republican Party, I would like to invite you to join us in reshaping the political landscape at our upcoming Fall Convention, held at L.A. Live at the JW Marriott, September 16-18. It's a new day in California politics, and you can be a part of it.


We're ushering in a new era, broadening our communications strategy and reaching out to previously ignored voters in order to spread our message and inspiring a new generation of Republicans. We're leaving our comfort zones and moving forward to success.


As part of this exciting new initiative, the CRP will feature a number of workshops and events the Fall Convention tailored toward building our party for a stronger future. One event I'm especially looking forward to is our partnership with Univision, the world's largest Spanish-language network, to host a Spanish-language version of our "California Speaks Out" town hall meetings at the convention.


Come to L.A. this September and be part of the excitement. You can access all the important deadlines, sign up forms and hotel registration information from the panel on the right, and bear in mind that all convention related materials will be accessible online only.

This convention is also an excellent opportunity to help identify the leaders of the future. You will be able to network with like-minded individuals, attend workshops designed to hone your political skills, and say goodbye to "politics as usual." Thank you for helping us to welcome the future of the Republican Party in California - we look forward to seeing you in Los Angeles.

Republican Business Directory  
Do Business with fellow Republicans

In these tough economic times we have decided to help each other out economically.

We are preparing a business roster of Republicans for SFVRC members.  This will be merged with a county-wide business directory that is being prepared by LA County Republican Clubs.

We are encouraging all of our members to patronize the businesses of our fellow members and Republicans.  If you need goods and services, why not have them provided by your fellow Republicans?

For those of you who would like to have your business listed in our business directory, please send an email to:

Provide your name, the name and street address of your business, your business phone number, your business web site address, and your email address.  Also provide a description of the services you provide or the type of goods you sell.

We would like to publish this directory by March, so please send in your information.  Send an email with the above information.

We expect to have another great meeting of the San Fernando Valley Republican Club on Tuesday, September 6th.     

I hope to see you there.
