GOPAC, a center for educating and electing a new generation of Republican leaders, has named Tennessee Rep. Gerald McCormick to its Legislative Leaders Advisory Board for 2018.
“As a member of our advisory board, Rep. McCormick will serve a key role in supporting our mission to educate and elect the next generation of Republican leaders. He will be a valuable asset as we advance leaders who are focused on the personal and economic security of Americans,” said Chairman David Avella.
“I am so honored to join a team that has served the conservative cause for decades by providing training and policy development. GOPAC’s role in equipping leaders to govern using proven principles is unmatched,” said Rep. McCormick, the Chattanooga Republican who serves as chairman of the Tennessee House Sub-Committee on Finance, Ways & Means. “Good policy results in good politics. But, good policy works best for Tennesseans and all Americans.”
Members of GOPAC’s Legislative Leaders Advisory Board promote the ideas they are championing by addressing elected officials, candidates and members at GOPAC events and via its digital program. In addition, they nominate a promising state legislator for the Emerging Leaders Program and provide updates on key legislative and political developments within their respective states. Membership is a one-year term.
Rep. McCormick was first elected in 2004 to the TN General Assembly. He is a commercial real estate broker who first served publicly in the U.S. Army as a nuclear, chemical and biological specialist in both critical operations in the 1990s, Desert Storm and Desert Shield.
