National Federation of Republican Women
Increases Membership to More Than 75,000

Creative, Innovative Strategies Lead to Gains in More than 30 States

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – On Election Day, the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) achieved a membership increase over the previous year when total national membership surpassed 75,000.

Thirty state federations already have equaled or surpassed their 2009 membership totals, with several more states on target to achieve similar results this year.

"The Federation and its leaders have worked hard this year to take this organization to a new level by implementing creative and innovative strategies to engage women in the political process," NFRW President Sue Lynch says. "We couldn't be more pleased with the resulting increase in membership, and we will continue our efforts to bring more women to the political table."

Lynch attributes the NFRW's membership gains to many factors, including improved dissemination of information, expanded public relations and outreach efforts which have included national media exposure, increased usage of new media such as Facebook and Twitter, and collaboration with like-minded groups. Lynch says the elections also played a role. Republican women were energized by the Republican message and by the quality of Republican candidates, particularly the distinguished group of Republican women running at the federal and state levels.

Founded in 1938, the NFRW has thousands of active members in local clubs across the nation and in several U.S. territories, 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.
