We sincerely appreciate your support and involvement throughout 2012 for Concord 51; it was a tremendous year of growth for the PAC.
We are very excited for 2013 as we believe this is a turning point for the political landscape in this country. While the November elections did not produce the results we hoped for, we are ready to present to you all a platform that we believe will produce a very strong and positive voice on energy advancement, fiscal responsibility and a strong national defense.
We have over 200 paying members in our organization and over 2,000 followers to our newsletter and other materials. We have had a number of successful recruitment events this past year, including the launch of chapters in both Atlanta, GA and Charlotte, NC and also college chapters at both Fordham and UVA with several others in development. We have worked with such political figures as Governor Jon Huntsman, Governor Scott Walker, Governor Mitt Romney, Senator Richard Lugar, Speaker John Boehner, Congressman Eric Cantor and many others. Media outlets ranging from The New York Times, Politico, Bloomberg News, Daily Caller and The Atlantic have looked at the impact we are having on changing the millennial landscape. And we are partnering with the leading organizations who align with our core policy positions including the Campaign to Fix The Debt and its young professional arm, The Can Kicks Back, and various young professional groups working on energy and defense issues.
We plan to expand in a very significant way in 2013, as we feel that there has never been a more important time to focus on where young professionals are active in politics. We have raised over $115,000 during our first year in operation and have a strong focus on increasing membership and fundraising in 2013.
As part of our ongoing commitment to the membership, we would like to invite you to participate in a very short end of the year survey
, which will help us continue to make improvements in our outreach and programming efforts. The survey can be found online at - goo.gl/KTGSK
and it is completely anonymous.
We look forward to seeing you all in 2013!
The Concord 51 Board
