If you’re a Republican in the 8th District, we’ve got plenty of committees, clubs, and organizations for you to join. We have a unit committee in each of the four localities of the 8th District — Arlington County, the City of Alexandria, Falls Church City, and Fairfax County. In addition, we have a wide variety of auxiliary organizations. We invite you to join our committees and our auxiliaries. It is a great way to get involved in local Republican politics! It’s very easy — all you have to do is come to one of our meetings or contact us at the information below, and we’ll get you involved!
This page only includes units and auxiliaries within the 8th District. For more Republican organizations throughout Northern Virginia, check out the links on the side. Also, events for all the units, auxiliaries, and organizations throughout Northern Virginia are posted on our Upcoming Events page, so be sure to check there regularly!
