Your Board Served You Well in 2014
  ─ OFRW Board Overview ─

The OFRW Board led the organization very responsibly during 2014. These are a few of its accomplishments:
  • Finished the year $5,285 under budget. The 2014 budget called for using $5,682 from reserves. The Board managed resources very wisely, resulting in NO funds being used from reserves. Its management was so good, in fact, that a small amount was ADDED to the reserves.
  • This financial achievement was possible at the same time the Board insured the corporation at an unbudgeted expense of $1,200+, and
  • The Board also provided two new FREE member service events in 2014 - Judicial Day and Legacy Luncheon.
  • A great deal of the thanks for this positive financial situation should go to all who helped raise funds for the organization - the Cardinal Fund chairs broke a number of records!
  • The OFRW had some of the largest participation in our statewide board meeting/conferences that has been experienced in quite a few years.
  • The Campaign Committee enabled the OFRW to be a finalist for the prestegious National Reed Award in Campaining and Elections for our call in support of re-electing Justices French and Kennedy.
  • The Board tied the best membership record held by any term during the past 16 years
  • The Board has worked hard and is now well on its way to having meetings that conform to legitimate parliamentary procedures - guaranteeing all a voice.
Your Board is working for you -- and working well. Congratulations to all who serve on the OFRW Board of Directors, you did a wonderful job in 2014!
