NEW BERN – The Craven County Republican Party will hold its annual convention on Saturday, March 20, 2021. Due to the COVID restrictions in North Carolina, we will be having a hybrid convention, meaning that delegates may attend in person or virtually via Zoom. 

All registered Republicans in Craven County should have attended either an organized or open precinct meeting in February to register. If you have registered as a delegate or alternate, you will be receiving an email with the instructions on how to attend the Convention via Zoom. 

If you choose to attend in person, the Convention will be held at The Maola at Riverside, 1402 N. Craven Street, New Bern, NC 28560. Credentials will be verified at the door to ensure that anyone registering as a Delegate is authorized to vote. The Convention business will focus on electing a new Executive Committee for the 2021-2023 term and several Resolutions. If you have any questions, please email us at
