Be Ready for the 2012 National Party Conventions!
2012 is an exciting year for national politics. State and Federal Communications, Inc. is your trusted resource for comprehensive lobbying and campaign finance guidelines to assist your organization with navigating the national party conventions. Here is our User’s Guide to National Party Conventions.
The Republican National Convention is being held in Tampa, Florida at the Tampa Bay Times Forum from August 27th to August 30th. The Democratic National Convention opens at the Time Warner Cable Arena on September 3rd and closes on September 6th with President Obama accepting the nomination of his party at the Bank of America Stadium.
These conventions will be a gathering place for delegates and other party members from across the country and thus will represent an excellent opportunity for your organization to interface with a wide range of public officials.
Knowledge of the applicable federal, state, and local rules governing your interactions with both convention delegates and other public officials in attendance will ensure your organization has the tools available to say, “I Comply.”
What is important as you read the document is knowing the official names of the convention and host committees:
1. Republican Convention Committee —
Committee on Arrangements for the 2012 Republican National Convention;
2. Democratic Convention Committee —
The 2012 Democratic National Convention Committee, Inc.;
3. Republican Host Committee —
2012 Tampa Host Committee; and
4. Democratic Host Committee —
Charlotte in 2012 Host Committee.
In closing, we hope this resource serves you well during the upcoming convention season. The Research Department of State and Federal Communications, under Manager John Cozine, made sure we looked at all avenues of giving.
We wish you all the best this summer before the conventions.
