Welcome to the Uptown Charlotte Republican Women!
The Uptown Charlotte Republican Women (UCRW) was created in 2019 to allow busy working professional conservative women a chance to network with fellow conservative women in a casual, happy hour setting. No drama, no fuss, no agenda. Just likeminded conservatives gathering to enjoy a cocktail, enjoy a bite and to talk with one another before getting back to our households!
Our mission is to promote Republican values with conservative women in a fun and casual happy hour setting throughout the Uptown Charlotte area. Our group is proud to partner with the Mecklenburg County Republican Party and the North Carolina Federation of Republican Women. We will soon be a chartered and recognized member of the National Federation of Republican Women! Dues are $25 for members and associate members. This is the cheapest Federated Club you can join in North Carolina! Click on the join page to become a member!
The group meets the 2nd Wednesday of the month from 6-8pm at rotating locations around Uptown, Dilworth, Elizabeth, NoDa, Plaza Midwood, Cotswold and near light rail stops. Be sure and check here to find out where the next month's event will be!
The UCRW holds its annual meeting on the 2nd Wednesday of each January, where we elect new leadership. If you would like to serve in leadership or on our social committee, please contact us!

WATCH: "Girl Power" Virtual Meeting
We were excited to host our second virtual happy hour meeting, "Girl Power", on May 13. We were honored to hear from ALL of our Republican women running for office in Mecklenburg County this November and get updates on how they are proceeding with their races during this new normal!
