Georgia Republicans elected Ginger Howard to serve as the Republican National Committeewoman at the 2016 GA GOP Convention. Her goals as Georgia’s Republican National Committeewoman include increasing communication between the RNC and Georgians and fostering unity in the Republican Party.
A volunteer grassroots leader since 1989, Howard has engaged in politics on a number of different fronts. She is a 2007 graduate of the Coverdell Leadership Institute, member of the Women’s National Republican Club in New York, and former 5th District Secretary. Howard has attended the last four National Republican Conventions, serving as a Delegate to the 2012 and the 2016 National Convention. She is the Past President of The Buckhead Republicans, and currently serves on the Board of Governors for The Georgia Republican Foundation.
In recognition of her extensive involvement, Howard received the 2013 Georgia Republican Party’s Volunteer of the Year Award. She was also named Georgia’s Business Woman of the Year by the National Republican Congressional Committee in 2004. The Atlanta magazine later recognized Howard as one of the Top Influential Women in Atlanta in 2015. Howard owns Ginger Howard Selections, an upscale women’s boutique in Buckhead. As a small business owner for over 25 years, she has gained the respect of her local community and understands the desperate need for conservative leadership in Washington, Georgia, and in local communities.
Since being elected as Republican National Committeewoman, Howard was elected by her peers in the Southern Region of the Republican National Committee to serve on the Site Selection Committee, elected to serve on the Standing Committee on Rules, and she was appointed by Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel to serve on the Committee on Arrangements for the 2020 Convention. Howard also serves on the Faith Advisory Board for the RNC.
In July of 2019, Howard was appointed to serve on the Women for Trump National Advisory Board.
Howard has invested her life in conservative Republican politics, as well as in the faith community at Church of the Apostles in Atlanta where she disciples young women. She cares deeply about the future of our county, and as demonstrated by her decades of service and commitment, Howard is devoted to serving Georgians and Americans alike with true conservative values.
