Turning Point USA at the University of Iowa is strong and steady! I mentioned in my last field report that just having it registered, we were off to a slow start. What I realized in this last month is that even though it can be a slow start, it is better to have quality activists over quantity. I recently realized how important it is to have really passionate, dedicated and strong activists that truly want to make the difference and do what they can to be involved on campus and to spread the Big Gov Sucks message.
At our last meeting we named some of our activist to leadership positions. We named our Social Media director who will take care of our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages. We also opened up our Secretary role to anyone who thinks they could handle the job. I also got the chance to talk to our activists about our several conferences that are coming up this summer. I introduced our Young Women’s Leadership Summit that will take place in Dallas, as well as our Young Latino Leadership Summit that will also take place this summer in Florida.
I feel very confident in the direction of Turning Point USA’s Iowa chapter. Its growing slowly but surely and we are going by the week! I will continue to try and bring different speakers to campus and get other events going to show all of the progress that is being made at The University of Iowa.
