Since early last week, NCGOP Chairman Michael Whatley and NCGOP Staff have been in constant communications with the Greenville Convention Center, our host hotels in Greenville and our other vendors about the conditions of the COVID-19 Virus Outbreak in North Carolina and the potential need for us to move the convention back from our original May 14-17 schedule.
