ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) has approved the charter of a Republican women’s club in New York.
Erie County Federated Republican Women was chartered on March 8 with 30 members. Kim Bowers of Orchard Park will lead the club as president this year. Club members meet monthly.
“The NFRW is pleased to welcome this 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.”
Annual club dues are $35. These dues also cover membership in the NFRW and in the New York State Federation of Republican Women. Several club programs, events and projects are underway, including the annual spring fling and presentation of the Woman of Distinction Award, a summer meet and greet, and a fall fundraiser supporting Republican women candidates.
“Our chief goals are to identify and promote candidates, particularly female Republicans, and to provide an organization in which women can exchange ideas and grow within the party," Bowers said.
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.
