COLUMBUS — Members of the Republican Probity Women (RPW) and the Preble County Republican Women’s Club (PCWRC) recently attended the Ohio Federation of Republican Women’s (OFRW) Fall Conference in Dublin.
“During the conference, it was my privilege to honor clubs that are both Nationally Federated and Ohio Federated. Additionally, Preble County is privileged to have two clubs that were represented at the 2022 Conference. Republican Probity Women was chartered this year and is off to a great start,” said OFRW First Vice President Stephanie Garrett.
The winners of the “Summer Spectacular,” a club competition to increase membership, were honored. Ottawa County Republican Women’s Club won the largest membership increase. Preble County Republican Women’s Club (PCWRC) won the largest percentage increase in membership.
Garrett, OFRW Membership Chair, announced the OFRW is experiencing not only an increase in individual membership but is also a significant growth in new clubs being chartered. Three new clubs have submitted applications to the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) and are awaiting the awarding of their charters. Two other clubs have submitted applications to OFRW and are awaiting approval on the state level.
Trump Campaign advisor Tana Goertz was a featured speaker. NFRW Director of Region 7 Monica Kozlowski brought insightful and motivating words from the Federation. Republican candidate for U. S. Senate JD Vance made a visit to the conference and explained his goals for being elected.
Both of Preble County’s clubs are political groups, founded to provide political education and legislative information; provide a wider knowledge of the principles of the Republican Party; increase the number of registered Republicans; recruit, promote, and support qualified Republican women for political office; give exposure to and work actively for all Republican candidates; and lend support to the activities of other Republican organizations.
The OFRW is a multi-generational, multi-cultural organization providing the structure and support for political activists to learn, engage, and flourish. The Clubs are chartered by the National Federation of Republican Women and are members of the Ohio Federation of Republican Women. Founded in 1929, the OFRW has thousands of active members in local clubs across the state. The NFRW is one of the largest women’s political organizations in the country. The grassroots organization recruits and elects Republican candidates, advocates the GOP’s philosophy and initiatives, and empowers women in the political process.
