Contact Heidi [MEMBERS ONLY]


Heidi Parker Martin was elected secretary of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) at the 42nd Biennial Convention in Oklahoma City and took office in January 2024. She is the director of NFRW Region 6, which includes Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Puerto Rico and South Carolina. She also is the advisor to the NFRW Public Relations and Protocol committees.  

Previously, Heidi served on the NFRW Executive Committee as member-at-large and director of Region 1. She also served on the NFRW Fundraising Committee as chair, vice chair and member. Her motto is, “How can I help?” 

On the state level, Heidi has served the Louisiana Federation of Republican Women (LFRW) in many capacities, including region vice president, recording secretary, treasurer, 2nd vice president and executive (1st) vice president. 

Heidi is the founding president of Bayou Teche Republican Women, which has transitioned into LFRW’s only virtual club, Pelican State Republican Women. She chaired the LFRW 30th Biennial Convention, co-chaired the LFRW 35th Biennial Convention and has served on the Nominating, Membership and Fundraising committees. 

In 2024 Heidi was re-elected to a third term on the Iberia Parish Republican Executive Committee. Also in 2024, she was re-elected to serve on the LAGOP State Central Committee. Additionally, she is a LAGOP Trust member and a member of the LAGOP Pelican Club. 

Heidi likes to say that her conservative activism began when she was 5 years old. At that time, her mother was running a gubernatorial candidate’s campaign from their home. Heidi helped answer the phone (“Treen for Governor!”) and put up signs throughout the neighborhood — few people could resist a 5-year-old’s request to put a sign in their yard.

Heidi is a businesswoman and has worked for her family’s manufacturing company for the past 28 years. She was selected to participate in the Louisiana Economic Development CEO Roundtable and the Iberia Parish Leadership Iberia program. 

Inspired by her mother’s civic involvement, Heidi serves her community in a variety of areas. She is currently appointed to the Iberia Parish Tourist Commission and has served on the boards of directors of the Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce and the Iberia Parish Habitat for Humanity. She is also proud to be a Berry Queen, the “fun”-raisers for Iberia Parish. In addition, she donates design and print services to many local non-profit organizations. 

Heidi has been a longtime member of Highland Baptist Church in her hometown of New Iberia, Louisiana. She has been married to Andy Martin for over 15 years and is the proud bonus mom to Joseph, 25, and Cloie, 22. As her mother did, Heidi has exposed both of her children to conservative activism. On the day each turned 18, Heidi brought them to the registrar of voter’s office to sign up to vote and is proud that both registered Republican.
