The Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT), the largest, nonpartisan and most active youth conservative group in the state, with nearly a three-decade history of activism, are hosting their 29th Annual State Convention in Austin, Texas on April 3rd – 4th at the Doubletree Hotel, located at 6505 IH-35 in North Austin.

YCT has been very influential and active in the past year. Recently, their Legislative Agenda made headlines with their fight to keep tuition affordable. Chapters across the state continue to fight for conservative principles on their campuses, as well as in Austin.

“The 29th Annual State Convention is a chance for members of YCT to interact with leading conservatives in the nation, friends, alumni and members from chapters across Texas,” said Laura Elizabeth Morales, Senior Vice Chairman, “The panelists and speakers will offer valuable advice and information to our attendees.”

The convention will feature speeches and panels by influential leaders in Texas politics and the conservative movement, including Governor Rick Perry, who will address the convention on Saturday, April 4th, at 4 p.m.. Former United States Treasurer Bay Buchanan, who served in President Ronald Reagan’s Administration, will deliver a keynote address on Saturday, April 4th at 7 p.m..

“We also welcome newcomers to this convention to learn more about YCT and what we do. This is a great place to meet like minded conservatives and make new friends,” added Tony McDonald, Vice Chairman of Legislative Affairs.

Other speakers include representatives from the National Republican Senatorial Committee, Empower Texans and Americans for Prosperity. State Representative Wayne Christian will address the students. Ted Cruz, former Solicitor General of Texas will deliver a lunch keynote address.

Former Secretary of State Roger Williams will open the convention with a reception on Friday, April 3rd at 7 p.m.
