President's Message 

Linda Bartlett, VFRW President

Sometimes it’s just Magic...
Especially when we are...
United in Vision and Values!

I am grateful to have been your President for this term, and doubly grateful for the friends I’ve made and the wonderful women who worked with me to put the VFRW on an upward path toward the future.

Ideas can turn to Magic when people buy into them and decide to make them realities. This is how I see the last two years. Once the current group of officers campaigned on improving Communications for the VFRW and then set about implementing that concept, a grand group of women came together to fulfill that promise.

By the end of our first six months we had put out two VFRW Victory quarterly newsletters, staged our first “Boots on the Ground Soiree,” successful fundraiser, contracted with PayPal, automated the RSVP System for Board meetings, and constructed the organization’s first bi-annual Budget.

In that Budget we included a line item each for the YR and CRs, to foster closer cooperation with Republican affiliates.
(A political bloc consisting of College, Young, and Federated Women Republicans groups is formidable)

We also added a line item for Communication that allows us to continue to improve at the state level, but to also help our local clubs.

Eventually we realized a volunteer organization is not ideal for running and maintaining a more complex website so in October 2015 we contracted with J-TEC in Chesterfield to overhaul and redesign ours.

It has history and current events for the VFRW along with all essential documents and necessary VFRW and NFRW deadlines. We are adding more Republican Business women and an expanded photo gallery.

All the pieces are in place for expanding our membership and for delivering our core message of United in Vision and Values.

This allows us to communicate more fully, more rapidly, and with more timely information. And, it enhances our ability to participate in effective political campaigning that gives success a greater chance.

We included children in the fundraising efforts in order to encourage young families to participate and it provides the VFRW a path to the next generation.

Jeff Ryder, Chief of Staff, Virginia Senate Caucus said, “The challenge of attracting Millennials is consistency, and it is a long term battle.” Millennials are visually oriented. Our website is a start, but to attract them we will need to go where they are.

In 2015 we supported 22 member candidates, many of whom were running themselves for the first time.

They reflected a positive, professional image to the public of themselves and of this organization. Fourteen won and we are thrilled.

Those who did not will ty again, with our help. Significantly, they drew a map for the Republican Party that indicates where time and money are needed for success in November.

That same map can guide the NFRW Bus that will come to Virginia to make a traveling and very visible statement that Women support Republicans.
