(New Committee Assignments for the MassGOP – promoted by Rob “EaBo Clipper” Eno)
Here is the just released list of committee appointments. Any emphasis is in the original.
As noted, 5 more members per committee will be elected by caucus at Regional Meetings called for that purpose. The Region 5 meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 13.
Kirsten is pleased to announce her appointments to each Standing Committee, as well as the formation or re-direction of 4 ad hoc committees.
As you know, the Bylaws changes required every Committee (except Budget) to re-organize under new appointment/election requirements.

Obviously there are a couple of changes to the Executive Committee. Kirsten thanks Barbara McCoy for her steady service as a member of the EC, and welcomes Mindy McKenzie-Hebert, the new Chair of the Issues Committee.
There have been a number of members who have expressed interest in the resurgence of this committee, with some specific goals and deliverables. As such, Kirsten issues the following charge for this subcommittee: “The Outreach Committee will be tasked with reviewing RNC programs dedicated to outreach to women, minority communities, urban voters and any non-traditional Republicans, as determined by the Outreach Committee. They shall, further, explore other opportunities to develop and introduce other programs into the MassGOP which serve to grow the Party within those communities. They shall make a report with specific action items, back to the Full State Committee no later than June 30, 2014, after which time the Chair shall decide whether to extend this Committee, amend their charge or disband the committee.
Members of this committee shall include: Barstow, Lisa; Slade, Susan; Sundstrom, Mimi and any other non-voting member as may be selected by the Party Chair by November 1, 2013. The Committee will be chaired by Rachel Kemp.
The Technology Committee will be reorganized to allow better distribution of tasks from MassVictory and expand the committee to address additional interest. The Chair asks for a regular status report from this Committee to routinely evaluate their mission, membership and necessity. The charge of the committee shall be directed by non-voting Co-Chair of the Committee Paul Holzer. Other members include: Co-Chair Steve Aylward and members Andrews, Gordon; Conway, Scott; Cordeiro, Brock and Kangas, Jeanne.
This Committee is charged with reviewing the current regional structure to determine if re-alignment is warranted, and if so, to recommend changes to the State Committee, on or about June 30, 2014. Said recommendations, if warranted, will be placed on the agenda at the first Full State Committee meeting after June 30, 2014, asking consideration to refer them to the Bylaws Committee. This Committee will be disbanded after the recommendations are issued.
This Committee will be Chaired by Ed McGrath. Kirsten Hughes will also sit on this Committee. Additionally, one member from each current region is hereby appointed, as follows:
Region 1: Mike Case; Region 2: Janet Leombruno; Region 3: Helen Hatch; Region 4: Michael Cowett; Region 5: Fran Manzelli
This Committee is charged with review of the 2010 Platform. Any recommended changes shall be reported to the Full State Committee at the first meeting of 2014, after which this committee will be disbanded.
The Committee will be Chaired by Amy Carnevale.
Members of the Committee will be: Hughes, Kirsten; Kaufman, Ron; Prunier, Chanel; Kangas, Jeanne; Buckley, Peter; Conway, Scott; Doherty, Patricia; Gillmeister, Bill; Kelly, Joyce; Luther, Nancy; Martell, Deb; McKenzie-Hebert, Mindy; Mello, Horace; Potaski, Mike; Sisk, Matthew; Rep. Donald Wong
Thanks all for your patience. Standing Committees will be rounded out by electing a representative from each region at an upcoming meeting.
