Welcome to the Georgia Federation of Republican Women

The Georgia Federation of Republican Women is comprised of clubs all over the state of Georgia. Each club that becomes a member of the Georgia Federation automatically becomes a member of the National Federation of Republican Women.
If you are not a member of a club, you may want to join one in your area. To find a GFRW club in your area, click on our “Find A Club” tab and search for a club by County or ZIP Code. If there is not a club in your area, you may wish to become an At-Large Member. You will find membership information and the different ways to sign up on the Membership tab.

GFRW Summer Conference at the Historic Windsor Hotel in Americus, GA. There’s no better way to experience southwest Georgia than staying at this historic landmark, Best Western Plus Windsor Hotel. Mark your calendars now to save the date to join us in Americus, GA. Originally built in 1892, the Best Western Plus Windsor Hotel is a beautifully restored historic destination hotel celebrating its 125th Anniversary in 2017. The hotel public areas and guest rooms were recently renovated in 2020.

The Georgia Federation of Republican Women’s Club (GFRW), now in our sixty-third year, has a rich and glowing history of devotion to making a difference as a shining light in the Republican Party. The camaraderie and friendships formed among members over the years while working together in the spirit of voluntary service have forged bonds that have sustained us as a committed, long lasting organization. We are deeply rooted as a sparkling example of determination, dedicated to fostering Republican principles and educating the electorate.

We are so excited about the GFRW entering 2020, and continuing to have a great impact reinforcing conservative values in Georgia and across our nation. Our members are energetic, smart, hard working and dedicated to our communities by working on campaigns and electing Republican candidates to office. We persist in our efforts to be the best we can be and strive to broaden our social media and community presences in order for more people to learn about the GFRW and our mission to grow the Republican Party at all levels of government.

GFRW is a part of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW), and our organizations consistently receive the coveted Diamond Award for excellence at the National Federation Convention, together forming one of the largest volunteer organizations in the United States. I hope that this year prompts many of you to get more involved by bringing your friends and neighbors to your club’s monthly informative meetings, serving on our board and committees, and connecting in our campaigns and outreach activities.
