The California Republican Assembly met at the Double-tree Hotel in Fresno, CA to pass new governing documents and positions and elect the Board of Directors that would serve for 2017. A new controversial bylaw amendment was presented and ultimately adopted that would provide for a "Lifetime Membership" for CRA that would be comparable to "Life Members" of the NRA. This opportunity would provide a patriot to claim they are not only supporting citizens but have taken a serious commitment to the CRA "What We Believe" platform.
Tom Hudson was Re-Elected as the CRA President with up and coming Vice-President Carl Brickey moving up to Executive Vice-President of the organization.
Bill Cardoza, Alice Khosravy, Tim Thiesen, Dale Tyler, Bob Kowell, Karl Geletich III, Jim Shoemaker, Nancy Hinton, and Joan Matteson.

Awards were given to Senator Ted Gaines, Assemblywoman Beth Gaines and Assemblywoman Shannon Grove
for having a 100% CRA Scorecard rating for 2016. Senator Ted Gaines is going to be running for a new and important position in the Board of Equalization fighting for our tax payers while the loved and respected Shannon Grove will be running for a seat with the State Senate. On behalf of California Conservatives and the Sacramento Republican Assembly we wish these three the best in all of their future endeavors.
