There, along with the party chair, vice-chair and delegate, all newly elected special delegates will help form/alter/rewrite and determine what the current Oregon Republican Party's stands for for the next two years. Participants helping in the process will be from among all 36 Oregon Counties' parties.

Members will participate there in various committees. The platform is a written document encapsulating what the Oregon Republican Party collectively states that it stands for.
