During what may be the most important election of our lives, it is the job of the RNC’s Committee on Arrangements (COA) to plan a blockbuster, 4-day Convention that will be broadcast across the world. We will host upwards of 50,000 guests in Milwaukee, including the delegates who will nominate the next President and Vice President of the United States.
Thousands of delegates and alternates will be selected by all 56 states and territories. They will travel to Milwaukee, WI July 15-18, 2024, to meet and select the Republican Nominee for President.
We don’t take this important task lightly, and we cannot wait to share with you the details of this incredible democratic event that is so rich in tradition. Milwaukee, here we come!
