We encourage attendees to pick up their credentials on Friday afternoon and evening to the extent possible.  This will ease registration congestion on Saturday morning.  After check-in on Friday evening, join your fellow Republicans at the Welcome Party.  Complimentary appetizers, music, hosted beer and and a cash bar will be provided, along with the opportunity to visit the silent auction, vendor, and candidate tables. 

The silent auction and vendor tables will also be open on Saturday. Whether you are onsite at the convention and/or offsite, you can bid on the wide variety of item in the silent auction using the online silent auction software called HandBid.  Proceeds from the silent auction help to support Republican candidates at all levels.  

Convention business begins on Saturday morning with the customary opening ceremonies, followed by a full day of business.  At noon, box lunches will be provided to delegates, alternates, and pages.  Please indicate any special dietary needs on the registration form.  Guests are welcome to purchase a box lunch using the registration website.

Governor Burgum is hosting a dinner on Friday evening in the Event Center.  You can register for the Governor’s Dinner through this registration website.  

Plenty of hotel rooms in the Bismarck-Mandan area are available and can be reserved, see the local tab here for hotel registration links and information.
