NCGOP Announces Mason Weaver as Special Guest and Speaker at 2009 NCGOP Convention

Mason Weaver will speak to North Carolina Republicans at the 2009 NCGOP Convention held June 12-14 at the Raleigh Convention Center. He will be a special guest at the Saturday evening banquet. Mr. Weaver is a motivational speaker, author, and talk show host. He has been training, educating, teaching and reaching thousands with his messages of hope for the future and empowering individuals with the tools they need to become the driving forces for positive change.

After approximately 2800 pounds of steel and iron plates fell on him, while on active naval duty in San Diego, California, the Navy classified him disabled and discharged him. However, Weaver turned his story of tragedy into a story of triumph as he graduated college, won a position with the U.S. Department of Energy, and later became a business consultant and entrepreneur.

Mason Weaver has appeared on national TV, cable and news programs. He is often contacted by national news organizations to comment on breaking stories. Weaver has also hosted a live call in radio program and wrote a weekly column on social and political issues. He soon became a sought after public speaker and lecturer for his extraordinary view of government and business. Noted for his quick wit, vigorous debate and forceful oratory, Mason is a challenge to the opposition and an instructive persuasive counselor to allies.

NCGOP Chairman Linda Daves said, "We are honored to have Mason Weaver join us as a speaker at the 2009 NCGOP Convention. Mason's story of initiative and effort to trun tragedy to triumph is one that is relevant to Republicans as we strive to build a stronger and better Republican Party in North Carolina. Mason has been a favorite of grassroots activists from the North Carolina Federation of Republican Women and his words are sure to inspire and motivate the grassroots at our convention."
