NH Federation of Republican Women

Welcome to the New Hampshire Federation
of Republican Women's (NHFRW) Website.

Founded in 1944 NHFRW is the largest Republican Women's organization in the state. We presently have 8 clubs whose objective is to support Republican candidates and the principles and policies of the Republican Party both in New Hampshire and Nationally.

Our membership is comprised of women of all ages from great grandmothers to the college Republicans. We also have members from all walks of life from professional, working women, retired and stay-at-home moms. Our members can get involved as much as they want or just attend those activities which most interest them.

NHFRW is part of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW), which is a grassroots political organization composed of 1,800 local clubs and over 100,000 members in 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. The NFRW was founded in 1938 to foster and encourage loyalty to the Republican Party and promote the interchange of ideas.

I encourage you to review this website and get to know us and get involved. This website provides you information on each of our clubs, how to become a member and our upcoming events.

On our CALENDAR page you will find the schedule of NHFRW Board meetings for the rest of the year, which will generally be held the fourth Monday of the month at 2:00 PM at The Draft in Concord. There are a few exceptions noted.

The next meeting will be held on Monday, March 26 at 2:00 PM.

NHFRW State President Visits the Federated Clubs

The New Hampshire Federation of Republican Women's state president, Jeanine Notter, visited the North Country Republican Women on Tuesday, September 20th. It was a bright, sunny day, perfect for a drive.

The good, Republican women of the North Country opened an office to help promote our candidates.

Jeanine said, The office is so cozy, with a table and a separate living-room area, complete with a TV for watching debates and returns. In the back is a quieter section for phone banking.

The ladies were so hospitable, friendly, united, and dedicated to getting our candidates elected. It was a a pleasure to visit with them.

The federated clubs obtain points from the National Federation of Republican Women by completing a list of requirements. The Diamond Award is the highest award given by the NFRW.

When Jeanine was inducted as state president, she said she wanted all of the NH to clubs earn the Diamond Award. Having the state president visit the federated clubs is one of the requirement options.

Having the Federations National President visit and speak is another. President Carrie Almond spoke at NHFRWs Lilac Luncheon last spring, arriving on Rosie the Bus. President Almond and Rosie returned to NH during the summer for a few quick stops.

Next on the list for Jeanine is a visit to the Seacoast Republican Women. They are having a breakfast for the new members at the Old Salt Restaurant tomorrow morning, September 22nd.

Continuing my tour of the Federated clubs of NHFRW, I visited the Seacoast Republican Women on Thursday, September 22, 2016. It was an introductory meeting for new members and was held at the historic Old Salt Restaurant at Lamies Inn in Hampton.

When I visited the North Country Republican Women, the word that came to mind was, Unified. The primary is over and those ladies are ready to win big in November. If I had to describe the Seacoast Republican Women in one word, I would say, Organized. Each new member was given a packet of information. SRW is the biggest club. They have several different committees. The head of each committee gave a short presentation at the breakfast. Looking through the folder, I looked over to the Publicity Chair, who was sitting at my table, and exclaimed, Wow! Im impressed. She said, Jo Horvath has done a phenominal job as President of SRW. Shes thorough, organized, and has proven to be an incredible asset to our organization.
