Past General Body Meetings
General Body Meetings aim to bring together the club membership to discuss current topics in politics and national affairs. We welcome students of all political perspectives to attend and contribute to the conversation. Students do not need to be part of Columbia Republicans -or even be Republicans!- to attend.
We encourage students with differing viewpoints to attend!
We hope to see you at our next GBM!
