ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) has approved the charter of a Republican women’s club in Ohio.
Chartered June 13 with 12 members, the Young Republican Women of Columbus is the second young Republican women's club chartered in Ohio this year. The Young Republican Women of Dayton was chartered in May.
Kelly Ilagan will lead the club as president this year. Club members will meet at 6 p.m. on the second Wednesday of the month.
“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 Kelly and club members to promote Republican principles and elect Republican candidates during this 2016 election cycle and beyond.”
Annual club dues also cover membership in the NFRW and in the Ohio Federation of Republican Women. The club’s goals include working to promote the Republican Party's principles and candidates, and increasing the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government through active political participation.
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.
