How We Are Structured

Our party is truly a grassroots organization. From the national level to the County and City level, it all starts with you!

County  Committeemen 

All counties in Arkansas shall have the opportunity to have a Republican County Committee, referred to as the “County Committee”.

The purpose of the County Committee is to assist in the election of qualified Republican candidates to public office and to fulfill the needs of the citizens of the State of Arkansas in a manner consistent with the beliefs and principles of The Republican Party.

County committeemen are the heart and soul of our organization. These are your friends and neighbors who are either elected during a primary or appointed by the county chairman. They go door-to-door in their neighborhoods rallying support for the party and our candidates.


However, and perhaps most importantly, every four years, you are able to vote for a county chairman

County Chairman

The county chairman, along with the executive committee, makes decisions on the direction of the party on the local level. They recruit and support candidates to run for county and city offices.  The county chairman is able to vote for a district chairman, vice-chairman, secretary, and treasurer. Matt McKee is the current County Chairman

District Chairman

Each Congressional district has a Republican committee whose purpose is to aid in the election of a Republican Congressman from that particular district. The district chairman and vice-chairman sit on the state committee which is the state party’s governing body. These committeemen are able to vote for a national committeeman and committeewoman as well as for the state chairman. 

State Chairman 

The state chairman is the head of the Republican party in his/her state. It is their job to support Republican candidates for statewide office. The state chairman is able to vote for the chairman of the Republican National Committee if their state voted Republican in the preceding presidential election, have a Republican majority in their congressional delegation (U.S. representatives and senators) or have Republican governors. JONELLE FULMER is our Arkansas Republican Chairman. 


National Committeemen

National Committeeman,(JONATHAN BARNETT) and National Committeewoman (RETA HAMILTON)  regardless of which party is in control of their state, are able to vote for a chairman of the Republican National Committee.


Republican National Committee Chairman 

The RNC chairman serves a two-year term and guides the party’s national effort to elect a Republican President and Republican members of Congress. Currently, Ronna McDaniel serves as Chair of the RNC.
