ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) has approved the charter of a new virtual Republican women’s club in Michigan.
Mi Republican Women Club was chartered on Feb. 10 with 11 members. Kim Hoppe of Ypsilanti, Mich., will lead the club during its first term. Club members will meet online for virtual meetings and discussions, and will also have access to online training opportunities.
“The NFRW is pleased to welcome this trailblazing e-club into our nationwide network of grassroots leaders,” NFRW President Carrie Almond said. “We look forward to working with Kim and club members to promote Republican principles and elect Republican candidates during this 2016 election cycle and beyond.”
Club dues are $20. These dues also cover membership in the NFRW and in the Republican Women’s Federation of Michigan.
"Our virtual club is the perfect solution for the modern Michigan woman who wants to be engaged using 21st century technology," Hoppe said. "It is a way to connect all women across the state, enabling members to be part of a growing trend of organizations breaking the mold of traditional groups."
Founded in 1938, the NFRW has thousands of active members in local clubs across the nation, making it one of the largest women’s political organizations in the country. The grassroots organization works to promote the principles and objectives of the Republican Party, elect Republican candidates, inform the public through political education and activity, and increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government.
