The Republican National Committee has launched a new website with hopes of engaging activists to help "analyze the strengths and weaknesses of the 2012 election cycle efforts of the RNC" and "is reaching out to hundreds of individuals including RNC Members, grassroots activists, donors, elected officials, community leaders and other important partners to help the Republican Party form a solid path going forward." The RNC believes in order to to properly prepare for 2016, as rumblings of who the GOP candidates will be have already started, activists must be engaged in the conversation about improvement.

"We want to hear from you as we chart the path to future victories," RNC Chairman Reince Priebus says in an opening video on the site. "The insights of activists and volunteers like you are critical."


The Growth Opportunity Project is chaired by Henry Barbour, Sally Bradshaw, Ari Fleischer, Zori Fonalledas and Glenn McCall. These Republican leaders will listen to suggestions and put them into action.

Just last week, President Obama launched his own form of activist engagement through "Organizing For Action."
