    Meet the Mix of Young, Local Conservatives | Social 11:30 am-Lunch 12:00 pm, February 27, 2019

    We recognize the names of the historic figures in the picture but few among us know how young these people were when our nation was in its infancy. 

    Who are the young people today who may become tomorrow’s leaders?

    Oxnard | The Channel Islands Republican Women Federated will hold its monthly meeting on Wednesday, February 27, 2019 at 11:30am at the Pacific Corinthian Yacht Club. Menfolk, members, and guests are welcome!

    Please join us and Port Hueneme Mayor Will Berg who will MC a panel of young people. Some are college students at CSU-Channel Islands and Cal Lutheran, two are young adults in the workforce, and a Westlake High School Senior. 

    Mayor Berg is an outstanding choice for the program. He sits on many boards and advisory councils including ones at Cal State Channel Islands and at Ventura College. Five years ago, Mayor Berg was named Citizen of the Year by the Port Hueneme Chamber of Commerce. He holds an MA degree in Comparative and International Politics and spent two years as a higher education volunteer in South Korea with the United States Peace Corps. Mayor Berg is also conversant in Mandarin Chinese having studied at the National Political Science University in Taipei, Taiwan. Will and his wife Beckie have lived in Port Hueneme for 17 years. He was elected to the city council in 2016 and became mayor this year.

    Joining Mayor Berg is an impressive group of young Americans to discuss their views, dreams, aspirations, and challenges. Please join us to “Meet the Mix of Young, Local Conservatives” and hear what they have to say about our world today.

    Channel Islands Republican Women Federated – CIRWF | Some proclaim the Channel Islands the American Galápagos. Species found here do not exist elsewhere. Our club too is one-of-a-kind. We meet the 4th Wednesday each month listening to dynamic speakers, exchanging ideas, and deciding on action that support Republican values, causes, and our local Republican candidates. We are also proud to welcome our menfolk into our ranks as associate members. Further, this year marks the 65th anniversary of our club’s founding after consolidations of neighboring clubs in the heart of the county seat, San Buenaventura. We are proud to share this anniversary year with that of the Republican Party founded in 1854.
