The House Republican Conference Chairman presides over conference meetings, which are composed of all members of the Republican party. The chair is elected by the conference and is the third-ranking Republican in the House of Representatives, after the House Minority Leader and House Minority Whip.
The House Republican Conference serves as the organizational forum to elect party leaders at the outset of each new Congress. The conference meets on a weekly basis to discuss party policy, pending legislative issues, and other matters of mutual concern.
No clear evidence exists of formal chairmanships of Republican organizations before the 38th Congress (1863–1865).
