Dear Vandy GOP,
Thank you all for coming out to our final meeting of the year with U.S. Representative Marsha Blackburn. I am very proud of the work we have accomplished this year. Because of the participation and enthusiasm of each of you, we have brought in notable speakers including Chris Devaney, Chairman of the TN Republican Party, Senator Jim Tracy, and Dr. Carol Swain. We established a growing alumni network of graduated Vandy Republicans and a donor base to assist in funding our initiatives. In addition to providing many internship and campaign involvement opportunities, I am pleased to announce that we have been able to send our members to both the Conservation Political Action Conference in D.C. and the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans. And yet we can still do better. The College Republicans will play a crucial role in 2010 elections, and we must do everything we can to assist candidates from our party. It has been my honor to serve as your president this year and I am confident that next year’s executive board will continue to advance our principles and campus outreach.
I am happy to announce next year’s officers:
President- Stephen Siao
VP Communications- Chelsea Gaw
VP Political Affairs- Mark Zager
VP Finance- Reid Harris
VP Events- Austin Caroe
VP Membership- Rachael Hesling
Have a great summer!

The fact that everybody can speak does not necessarily imply that everybody knows how to do it substantively. It is one thing to arrive at a speech, but it is another thing to make an impact with your speech. And a good speech is one that produces an effect to the audience—one that makes them listen to you and internalize every words you utter.
School being held at Vandy. The Leadership Institute’s flagship school, nicknamed “the boot camp of politics,” provides you with effective techniques to organize and lead massbased youth efforts for candidates and causes of your choice.

Unlike reaction and reflection papers that you have managed to write overnight, research paper writing is a more difficult task—and it requires serious efforts.
Research Paper is a formal document reflecting an author’s academic and professional qualification. This will accompany him to his journey to the corporate world. Learning to write a Research Paper is not only essential and required for a student to graduate, but is also the capstone of his professional and scholar identity the moment he steps out of his alma mater. Future employers would refer to an applicant’s academic endeavors—and his research paper is one of those.
