National Federation of Republican Women
Recognizes Local Club for Achievement
Award Bestowed During Biennial Convention
PHILADELPHIA – Gwinnett Republican Women won the National DIAMOND Award for Achievement during the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) 39th Biennial Convention held Sept. 14-17 in Philadelphia. More than 425 awards were given to clubs which demonstrated excellence in membership development, campaign activities, community relations programs and club functions over the past two years.
President of GRW, Linda Willliams, and past President Carol Field were present to accept the award. The Gwinnett Club and the Savannah Area Club were the only two clubs in Georgia to receive the Diamond Award.
The NFRW Achievement Awards program is designed to enhance teamwork among members of each club, said NFRW Achievement Awards Chair Gwen Ecklund of Iowa. Using the Achievement Awards worksheet as a guide for planning club activities produces a well-balanced club program. It establishes standards of performance for club functions, membership development, programs, campaign activities and community relations.
“An outstanding number of clubs from across the country responded with entries in our biennial achievement awards program,” Ecklund said. “It’s great to recognize these clubs for their achievements, but it’s even more exciting to see the results of their focused programming and outreach in their communities that increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government. Reading the award applications confirms the impact NFRW members have in promoting the principles of freedom, equality and justice upon which our government is founded.”
Founded in 1938, the National Federation of Republican Women is the largest and most influential Republican women's group in the nation, proudly representing the party that first made it possible for women to vote in the U.S. The NFRW works to increase the effectiveness and relevance of women in the cause of good government. Our mission remains to recruit and elect Republican candidates, promote the principles of the Republican Party, educate the public, and inform the media.
