What is Conference?

Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) is chair of the House Republican Conference.

As the organizational body for all GOP Members of the U.S. House of Representatives, the House Republican Conference is responsible for electing the House Republican leadership, approving GOP Member committee assignments, and developing a communications strategy to reach out to all Americans.

Internally, the Conference provides a wide variety of services to Members and their staff. Such services include daily legislative materials, visual media production, educational events and briefings, training seminars, issue-specific talking points, and assistance with press events and materials.

Externally, the House Republican Conference coordinates media availability for leadership events, schedules GOP Members to participate in TV and radio interviews, and generally communicates the House Republican message to the public.
