The Republican Club of Lakeland (RCL) was founded in 2005 as an offshoot of the Republican Executive Committee (REC) of Polk County. Our club maintains an active charter with the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF) through our association with the REC.
The mission of the Republican Club of Lakeland is to:
· Build unity and camaraderie between Republican supporters in our area;
· Increase local awareness of our party's philosophy of governing;
· Support Republican candidates and elected office holders at all levels of government; and,
· Provide leadership and coordination in support of the REC and the RPOF.
Our founders realized that, as Polk County's largest city, Lakeland needed an organization for like-minded Republican to band together in support of Republican candidates and conservative initiatives in our immediate area. As the club grew, it became obvious that there was a corresponding increase in our influence on Republican politics in Lakeland and throughout Polk County. We now have over 120 active members, some of which reside as far away as Valrico and Winter Haven.
Our club hosts monthly luncheon meetings on the first Wednesday of every month (except June and December) at the Cleveland Heights Golf and Country Club, located at 2900 Buckingham Avenue in south Lakeland. We pride ourselves on our ability to bring you dynamic, informative speakers who offer presentations on timely topics of local and regional interest to all Republicans.
If you are a current member, we look forward to seeing you again in the near future. If not, please consider joining our club and/or attending one of our upcoming meetings soon.
