The regular business for this Convention:
PARTY RULES CHANGES
DELEGATES — were elected in precinct caucus meetings, or subsequently appointed. They convene on May 13th as the State Convention, elect State Party officers and approve any rules changes. Resolutions brought duly to the floor will also be considered.
A delegate must be a Party member, a registered voter in the precinct he or she represents, and be timely registered, with fee paid. Delegates pay their own way. The Convention fee is set at cost. It is not a Party fund raiser.
Delegates, if not elected, and if openings in their precinct remain, may be appointed until May 3, 2017 by their Precinct President. Appointments may also be made, if any vacancies remain, between April 13 and May 3, by the District Chair or, if none, by the County Chair. District Chair appointments must be promptly notified to the Precinct President, if any, to avoid double-filling an opening.
Prospective appointees. and Officers making an appointment, must fill out the on-line form at https://docs.google.com/a/gophawaii.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeZWTNiBXR5-UdGEAEnXX2pXXGT03XASBArnyPy-OrfiSBYnA/viewform a

District Chairs may get current updates on their delegation from their County or Honolulu Regional Vice-Chair.
County Chairs and Honolulu Region Vice-Chairs may monitor their districts’ delegation lists at gophawaii.com under ‘Links,’ or click here: http://gophawaii.com/?page_id=1975.
ALTERNATES — are elected or appointed as above, and serve as delegates only in the absence of a delegate and in accord with their rank first, in their own precinct by order of election, then by order of appointment. Only at Convention itself, and only after Credentials Committee has verified all delegate check-ins, are any alternates moved into a delegate’s seat, and, if that precinct’s slots are filled, into another precincts’ empty delegate slot, if any, and only within their own District delegation.
Many alternates who attend will move up and serve as a delegate. A full district delegation with few or no absences would be the circumstance in which an alternate might not become a voting delegate.
EX-OFFICIO DELEGATES in this off-election-season year include all State and County elected Republican officials and all State Committee members. This includes District Chairs. They need neither election nor appointment but they must register and pay the Convention fee to be admitted as voting delegates. They serve as delegates in addition to the number of delegates allocated to their precinct of residence.
GUESTS — are welcome at Convention if they are a Party member, register, and pay the Convention fee. Non-member guests must be approved by their District and County Chairs and be pre-cleared with the Credentials Committee.

RULE CHANGES PROPOSED should be offered by way of your District Chair (see links above to find your District Chair) through his or her Rules Representative. The Standing Committee on Rules will vet all rules change submissions and provide its report to the convention.
