National Affiliation

The Glacier Country Pachyderm Club is affliated with the National Federation of the Grand Order of Pachyderm Clubs, Inc, affectionately known as “Pachyderms.”

Patterned after civic clubs, Pachyderm Clubs offer programs centered around politics and government. Pachyderm Clubs can be the continuity for the Republican Party from election to election in that unlike the party structure, Pachyderm Clubs remain active all year.

Pachyderm Clubs do not endorse issues nor candidates in contested primary elections. This prohibition provides a neutral forum for the discussion of divisive issues within the Republican Party. In many communities, the Pachyderm Club has become a healing influence within the party and a subtle reminder that Republicans agree on a much larger number of issues than we disagree on.

The Pachyderm Club movement is one of the most practical means by which broad citizen participation in politics may be achieved.

Over 60 Pachyderm Clubs are located in 15 states around the U.S. and are growing every day. We are actively looking for individuals to help start additional clubs in new areas.
