Don’t forget to make your reservations for the Summer Retreat in Waco July 19th and 20th.
Strong Women for a Democratic Texas: Summer Retreat in Waco
It is hard to believe but the summer retreat is only a month and a half away. The retreat is set for July 19th & 20th in beautiful Waco and is hosted by the wonderful ladies of the Central Texas Chapter. This is an event you don’t want to miss! The tentative agenda is set and it is exciting. It starts with check-in at 3:00 p.m. on Friday. Dinner is on your own Friday evening and this is a great chance to explore Waco. After dinner, it will be movie night!
Saturday morning continues with breakfast and lunch included in the cost of the retreat.
Highlights from the Saturday Schedule:
- Sen. Sylvia Garcia, the newest female Senator, and Chris Turner, Vice Chair of the House Caucus have both been invited to speak. As we know, a special session has been called, but these two outstanding legislators are going to speak at the retreat if possible.
- By popular demand we will have a social media workshop with Joe Deshotel.
- Alex Steele from Battleground Texas will speak about his organization’s plans on turning Texas into a Battleground State.
- We will hear from another new group that was recently started, the Texas County Democratic Committee. This is an organization whose aim is to help elect Democrats to office at the county level and below, primarily in non-urban counties.
- We will also be introducing the new Texas Democratic Party Executive Director, Will Hailer.
- Our wonderful silent auction is a great place to pick up a unique gift for yourself or someone else.
- We will present charters to our newest chapters.
