OFRW First Vice-president
Report from the NFRW Spring Board
NFRW welcomed all to its 2017 NFRW Board of
Directors meeting, March 16-18 in Memphis, Tenn. at the beautiful
Your OFRW was well represented at this
conference with President Lyn Bliss, First Vice-president Janet
Kushlan, Program Co-chair Eva Wray and Past President Mary Anne
Christie. When the NFRW gathered last year we said “2016” was THE YEAR
and pledged to work tirelessly to put a Republican in the White House.
It was the women’s voices and women’s votes that put us over the top on
The focus of the meetings were to not
only celebrate our White House win but to encourage more Republican
women to “Just Say Yes” when they are asked to run for office.
We need to keep our foot on the gas!! We
need to remind everyone to get on board with the Trump administration
and with Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch.
The discussion panel for encouraging and
mentoring Republican women to
run for office was made up of Allison Ball, Treasurer of the State of
Kentucky, Chassity Martin, Collinwood City, Tenn. Commissioner and
Leslie Rutledge, Attorney General of the State of Arkansas.
Guest speaker was Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn
of Tennessee’s 7th
District. President Carrie Almond shared a great video of all of
“Rosies” travels throughout the past year!
Training sessions were held on the new NFRW NOAH
Database and Eva
Guidarini of Facebook reviewed FB best practices in regards to
advertising and optimizing your organizations presence on the Facebook

of the Month for Club Presidents
As a President, part
of your responsibilities is to oversee retaining and increasing
membership. One of the best ways to accomplish this is through the
personal touch. Make sure all of your members that have not
paid their dues
for 2017, are given a personal telephone call (no, NOT an email, but a
personal call). This should be done by you, your treasurer or your
membership chair - or you might split up the unpaid members and have a
competition between you on who can get the most members to pay their
dues. The call should communicate that the member is missed and that
the club would surely like to have them join again this year. In
addition (not instead of the call) a card could be sent stating the
unpaid member is missed and reminding her of the dues amount and where
the dues should be sent.
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
