Tip of the Month for Club Presidents
Republican Primaries     

  The purpose of a Primary Election is to chose the person who will run in the next General Election as the Party's CANDIDATE.

Those people who are running as Republicans on the ballot for a Primary Election are considered to be nominees, as they have not yet won the right to represent the Party as its CANDIDATE in the General Election. By filing their petitions to appear on the primary ballot, they have become a nominee hoping to be elected as the Party's CANDIDATE. 

Unopposed Republican NOMINEES may be supported.

Clarification: until the primary is over, the person is not a Republican CANDIDATE, but only a NOMINEE. Primaries are held so party members may choose who they wish to run as their Party's CANDIDATE in the general election.


The Federation supports only Republican CANDIDATES.


Therefore, the Ohio Federation of Republican Women's Clubs are to treat all NOMINEES equally -- if one is asked to speak, all must be asked, if one is given a donation, all must be given equal donations, etd.

Individual members may, and are encouraged to, support the NOMINEE of their choice. However, they may NEVER use the name of the Federation or a Federated Club in  that support.

NOTICE TO CLUB TREASURERS 
The OFRW has prepared a form that can be used to present the monthly treasurer's report. A report should be prepared and given at each club meeting. These reports  are never approved at a meeting, as club members do not have access to receipts and statements covered in the report. The monthly treasurer's reports are simply accepted by the President and the statement made that the  report will be filed for review. A copy is then included with the minutes for that meeting. At the end of the membership year, all reports for the year should be submitted to a review committee - along with all of the supporting documentation (deposit receipts, statements, bills, monthly bank statements, etc.). The review committee should present its report covering the previous year's financila activities of the club at the first meeting of each membership year -- and this is what is given approval/acceptance (or not) by the membership. This report is also filed with the minutes of the club.
