LEO PHILLIPS TO SPEAK
We will begin our regularly scheduled monthly meetings on February 15th with a program featuring attorney Leo Phillips, who is currently the Chairman of Cherokee County, and has held various district positions. Leo will be bringing us up to date on what has been happening over the last few months and were we are headed for the coming election season.
As usual, we will ask members to bring a dessert or snack to share during our 6:30 pm gathering time, with the meeting starting at 7. This will be a busy election year, and we will need all the active help we can find. Please take the time to ask a friend to join you at our meeting. Everyone is welcome.

SCHOOL BOARD REPORT Robert Caldwell
As most folks know, our superintendent will retire February 28, 2018. Currently, the superintendent position is posted and the school board is accepting and reviewing applications. In addition to the many requirements required for this position; the school board has included in the job posting that a successful candidate should demonstrate ability and success in "planning, funding and construction of school facilities." This is particularly important during this time as we seek an individual who will continue to lead with the school board in completing the new primary school.
On January 24, I once again had the opportunity to volunteer in the school cafeteria. This gives me the opportunity to serve students, speak with staff and appreciate the work and effort that goes on every school day in our schools.
LOOKING AHEAD: Please remember that our Annual Conventions for both precincts and general membership within the county will be held at our March meeting. As March begins on a Thursday, the meeting will fall on the 15th (just like this month). We will be selecting delegates for both our District 11 Convention in April and our NCGOP State Convention in May. Preference will be given to those who will actually attend BOTH conventions. We will announce the dates of these in February if they have been set by then. Representing our county at these conventions is important, and we have had a real impact on some of the decisions made in past years. Our state convention always offers the opportunity to hear important nationally recognized speakers, to network with other counties to see what they are doing successfully, and to attend training workshops. PLEASE CONSIDER BEING A DELEGATE.
I look forward to seeing YOU in February.
Tommy Davis, Chairman
