From your OFRW Webmaster
has been a great pleasure to provide this website for the Ohio
Federation of Republican Women for the past eight years, and to be part
of bringing the organization into the digital age. The incoming
leadership has a wealth of plans, ideas and goals for the coming years
as that digital image will be further developed and fine tuned. In
providing each and every file, photo, picture, document, etc., etc. to
incoming OFRW President Janet and her communications team - it was
astounding exactly how much information is involved in
and maintaining this site currently and over the years. That
count for everything is:
7.31 GB (7,853,696,439 bytes) of
that digital information, 133,190 files in 5,598 directories are
currently active on the server that hosts this website!
are just the website information counts -- the remainder of the
president's digital information provided to incoming President
-- took a sizeable jump drive to hold the total of all OFRW
information in digital format -- 43.7 GB
(46,972,918,200 bytes), in 123,420 files, and in 19,804
Do not think any of us could even conceive of how much room that would
consume if converted to paper copies!
As you look at this page - just
take a moment to think about all the digital information it represents
get ready for an upcoming even bigger and better digital presence for

insure good media coverage
for your club
media outlets do not have the resources to re-write submitted press
releases. Therefore, if you submit a release regarding club activities
in a format needing none or very little work on their part,
the release is much, much, much more likely to be published! There are
some basic pointers to be followed in helping insure your release will
actually be used by the print media - you may find a good summary here:

TO CLUB TREASURERS
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.
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
not) by the membership. This report is also filed with the minutes of
