The North Oakland Republican Club (NORC) is the original Republican club of Oakland County.  Dating back to the 1960s, NORC has provided a forum to meet elected officials and information on current governmental. issues.  NORC has also been a conduit for people to get involved in government and an incubator for candidates.  NORC provides a community service with monthly free and open meetings featuring top speakers on current topics.
