The Alaska Republican Party will meet in Juneau on Monday for its quarterly gathering of district chairs, regional representatives, and bonus votes.
The party’s leadership holds its winter meeting when legislators are in Juneau, and Republican legislators are invited to attend. House Speaker Cathy Tilton is on the agenda to give a legislative update; the Legislature gavels in on Tuesday at 1 pm.
The group will meet in the Treadwell Room at the Baranof Hotel.
There will be a training session to prepare for state and national conventions in what will be a busy presidential election year. There won’t be any elections for party organizational positions; the party’s chairmanship and other seats will be up for election in March. The only announced candidate for party chair is Nikki Rose of Anchorage. Party chair Ann Brown has not revealed if she is running.
Republican candidates for Congress are expected to make appearances in Juneau at the GOP meeting on Monday, including Nick Begich and Nancy Dahlstrom.
Also, the Alaska GOP will have its annual Juneau fundraiser sponsored by Capital City Republicans before the legislative session starts. That fundraiser is at 5 pm Monday at the Baranof Hotel. It’s a $50 donation to get in.
