NATIONAL FEDERATION OF REPUBLICAN WOMEN As a regular member of Preston West Republican Women, you are a member of three additional organizations. The National Federation of Republican Women consists of over 1,800 clubs with more than 100,000 members across the United States. NFRW was founded at the Palmer House in Chicago, Illinois on September 23 and 24, 1938. Eleven state federations were charter members. They were California, Colorado, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. There were 13 additional states represented by individual clubs, which included a Texas club. In order to be considered eligible for membership in NFRW, a state federation or a club had to have members in 60% of the counties of the state. Since Texas has 254 counties, we did not achieve this goal until 1955. The seal of the NFRW is the Golden American Eagle, king of birds, holding a quill pen and standing guard like a gladiator over our most treasured tool of democracy – the ballot box. Adopted in 1944, it portrays the Federation’s interest in the protection and integrity of our electoral process. The American eagle is adopted from the Great seal of the United States. The quill is symbolic of the power of words, especially as contained in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. For more information, visit NFRW’s website at www.nfrw.org. TEXAS FEDERATION OF REPUBLICAN WOMEN The Texas Federation of Republican Women consists of 180 clubs with a membership of over 10,000 women. Men may be associate members of TFRW, but cannot vote, serve on committees, or hold office. The president represents us at all Republican meetings and functions, presides over the TFRW Board of Directors’ meetings and guides the executive director in the day to day operations of the TFRW office in Austin. She sends a monthly newsletter to all club presidents, TFRW Board members, and patrons. By the end of her two year term, she will have visited all of the clubs in the state. TFRW holds campaign management schools which are second to none. Each officer and board member contributes time and expertise to workshops and training sessions around the state. These people are all available as speakers for club meetings or special projects and events. TFRW provides training to the clubs on political action committee reporting, campaign activities, lobbying, legislative issues and club leadership. The office in Austin and all members of the board are always available to answer questions, give advice, help solve problems and do whatever is needed to insure success of the clubs. For more information, visit TFRW’s website at www.tfrw.org. DALLAS COUNTY COUNCIL OF REPUBLICAN WOMEN The Dallas County Council of Republican Women was formed in 1955 and currently supports 17 Dallas-area member clubs. Council meetings are held monthly at Dallas County Republican Headquarters, generally on the first Tuesday of the month at 9:30 a.m. (with occasional night meetings). For current details on Council meetings, visit the Dallas County Republican Party website at www.dallasgop.org. To receive a copy of the Council’s monthly newsletter free via e-mail, contact current President Janet Clesi at email@example.com.
