National Federation of Republican Women
Fall Convention in Louisville
More than 1,275 Republican Women Participate in Leadership Training
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – During the National Federation of Republican Women's 37th biennial convention Sept. 19-22, more than 1,275 Republican women leaders from across the nation participated in leadership training in preparation for the 2014 midterm elections.
During the four-day event, which was one of the largest national gatherings of Republicans this year, registrants participated in a series of leadership training seminars in the areas of outreach, community, campaigns, fundraising, and message development, taught by nationally-recognized experts.
The event also featured Republican leaders, elected officials and other notable guests, including Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), former Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao, Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC), Republican National Committee Co-Chair Sharon Day, and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza.
"We are very pleased that so many talented and dedicated Republican women traveled to Louisville to hone their leadership skills," NFRW President Rae Lynne Chornenky said. "We are ready to return home and begin working in our communities to achieve Republican victories next year, and to lay the groundwork for the next presidential election."
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.
