·        AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham’s Response To: Who Is The ‘Chairman’s Circle’?  Chairman’s Circle is comprised of our top individual donors.  The Chairman’s Advisory Circle includes some that are PCs, business leaders and other conservative activists.   Given their contribution to the party we meet quarterly to discuss operational needs and I report our progress with respect to voter registration, technology, coalition outreach, messaging, etc… (similar to the video report). In the past other chairman have had “Eagle Nest” and or other terms to identify this group of our case I call the group the Chairman’s Advisory Council.  It is truly another perspective consistent with the Republican Party Platform.  I have found that more feedback is good feedback. The State’s Executive Committee, State Board, PCs, Coalitions and the Chairman’s Advisory Circle combined give a great 360 degree view of the party and the formula for victory in 2014.”
