An elephant stampede will soon be tromping down to Galveston for a gathering of tuskers from across the country. The island city will be hosting the 2019 Biennial National Convention of the National Federation of Pachyderm Clubs on September 6 and 7.
According to the NFPC, attendees to the convention will “receive information on timely topics from immigration to national security to the economy to the overall state of the nation presented by nationally recognized experts in each arena. Additionally, a variety of workshops will teach leadership and growth strategies for local clubs to help each club grow and strengthen.”
This year, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) will be the keynote speaker Friday evening, while former Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker will headline the gala Saturday night.
The NFPC is a Republican organization founded in 1967 with the goal of educating the public on political issues and encouraging citizens to get more involved in politics. The NFPC has pachyderm clubs all across the country, with many in the Lone Star State. Every two years, the clubs converge for a national convention to hear from speakers and conduct the business of the organization.
“The Pachyderms have much to be proud of as we look forward to Texas hosting our 2019 Biennial National Convention: Escape to the Island,” said NFPC President Bob Shults. “The Galveston Island Pachyderm Club will chair the convention, assisted by our other Galveston/Houston-area Pachyderm clubs, as we welcome members and supporters from across the United States.”
