Scottsdale, Arizona – The popular networking group, Republican Professionals, will be celebrating its two-year anniversary at the renowned Scottsdale Plaza Resort on Tuesday, October 20, at 6pm. This month’s special event features remarks by three highly accomplished women from Arizona’s political scene.

Brenda Burns, one of the honorees, was the first woman to become Arizona House Majority Leader and repeated her remarkable feat as the first woman to be Arizona Senate President.  Joining her will be Laura Knaperek, who served eight years in the Arizona State House, and Starlee Rhoades, the Vice President of Communications at the Goldwater Institute.  All three distinguished guests will discuss their experiences and the important roles that many women perform, in public service.

In addition, leaders from the Dodie London Series, which seeks to increase the number and influence of Arizona’s Republican women in government and politics, will be in attendance.

The Republican Professionals milestone is going to be celebrated with a champagne toast, silent auction, and party favors.  Thousands of people, over the last two years, have attended the Republican Professionals’ free networking events.  Elected officials, political candidates and business professionals have enjoyed coming together to meet and discuss ways to help make the Republican Party grow in Arizona.  Prominent guests of honor at previous events include Jan Brewer, Ken Bennett and Joe Arpaio.

The event will be held at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort’s Cypress Court from 6pm to 8pm.  The hotel has arranged food and drink menu specials for the invited guests of Republican Professionals.  Given the popularity of past events and the buzz generated by our anniversary announcement, Republican Professionals highly encourages you to RSVP.

Republican Professionals hosts free networking events, each month, in the Phoenix metropolitan area.  For more information, and to RSVP, contact Thomas Galvin, Executive Vice President, at  The group’s website is

The purpose of Republican Professionals is to increase the participation of Republicans in the political process, further the goals of the Republican Party, and bring Republicans together so that they may network, volunteer, organize and communicate with fellow professionals.
