Of course, that really doesn't mention much about what the actual agenda is for either the District Caucuses or the State Convention, so I did some digging into the Republican Party of Michigan Rules for Selection of Delegates and Alternates to the 2012 Republican County, State, and National Conventions. Exhibit "B" of that document is interesting, as it goes into considerable detail (28 individual rules) as to how the business of the State Convention is to be conducted. Of particular interest is Rule # 27, the business agenda of the convention:

National Anthem
