  Seminar 1: Using Social Media to Engage and Persuade Voters
Representatives from social media organizations will show attendees how to utilize tools on social platforms in order to get a message out to the most people possible. With the renewed effort of the Republican National Committee to increase its outreach to women voters, the role of the NFRW has never been so important, and leveraging that grassroots strength through social media is vital.
Instructors: Jerri Ann Henry, digital account lead, Widmeyer Communications; and, Annie Lewis, client partner, Facebook


  Seminar 2: Federation Leadership Challenges and How to Face Them
The NFRW Leadership Development Committee will present this seminar, in part responding to the fact that 28% of respondents on the recent NFRW survey noted that they face leadership challenges. It will focus on the resources available within the NFRW that members can use when facing leadership challenges.
Instructor: Kay VanSant, Chairman, NFRW Leadership Development Committee


  Seminar 3: Demographic Partners and Earning Support
This seminar will focus on how to engage different demographics in your community and how to convey the Republican message effectively. In the past two election cycles, President Obama carried more than 80 percent of minority voters. In order to win future elections, Republicans must reverse this trend.
Instructors: The Republican National Committee's Stephen Fong, National Asian and Pacific Islander Field Director; and, Kristal Quarker-Hartsfield, National Director for African American Initiatives


  Seminar 4: How to Ask for Money, Even if You Hate To
Learn practical advice on how to raise money–even if you hate to–in a lively presentation which details the key to fundraising success: relationship building and the proven techniques that help donors move from concern to passion to cash.
Instructor: Nancy Bocskor, trainer, consultant, professor and author of "Go Fish: How to Catch and (Keep) Contributors"


  Seminar 5: Devising a Winning Strategy for the 2014 Midterm Elections
This seminar will serve as a crash-course on the gains Republicans need to make in 2014 and what you can do in practical ways to help achieve them. The current political landscape will be examined, and the role Republican groups can play in helping the party achieve success in 2014, and again in 2016, will be outlined.
Instructor: Rick Wiley, former Political Director, Republican National Committee
