It has been a great pleasure to provide this website for the Ohio Federation of Republican Women for the past eight years, and to be part of bringing the organization into the digital age. The incoming leadership has a wealth of plans, ideas and goals for the coming years as that digital image will be further developed and fine tuned. In providing each and every file, photo, picture, document, etc., etc. to incoming OFRW President Janet and her communications team - it was astounding exactly how much information is involved in building and maintaining this site currently and over the years. That total count for everything is:
  • 7.31 GB (7,853,696,439 bytes) of information in
  • 21,621 files
  • 2,375 folders
Of that digital information, 133,190 files in 5,598 directories are currently active on the server that hosts this website!

Those are just the website information counts -- the remainder of the president's digital information provided to incoming President Janet -- took a sizeable jump drive to hold the total of all OFRW information in digital format  --  43.7 GB (46,972,918,200 bytes), in 123,420 files, and in 19,804 folders. Do not think any of us could even conceive of how much room that would consume if converted to paper copies!

As you look at this page - just take a moment to think about all the digital information it represents ...
then get ready for an upcoming even bigger and better digital presence for the OFRW!
   Seasons Greetings from the Ohio Federation of Republican Women

Help insure good media coverage

 for your club

Print media outlets do not have the resources to re-write submitted press releases. Therefore, if you submit a release regarding club activities in a format needing  none or very little work on their part, the release is much, much, much more likely to be published! There are some basic pointers to be followed in helping insure your release will actually be used by the print media - you may find a good summary here:

Also, you might want to purchase "The Associated Press Stylebook and Libel manual:" Click HERE to order.

The following would be a wonderful newsletter - but would not get printed by your local newspaper:

This would have a much GREATER chance of getting printed:

If your club does not have a Facebook page or Facebook Group (there is a difference), it would be a wonderful idea to find someone in your club to start and maintain one (or both) for your club. If your club does have a Facebook Page or Group and it is not listed in the links under the "On The Web" tab of the menu bar above, please email the link for your Page or Group by clicking HERE. If your club would like help in starting a page or group, please contact the OFRW Technology Chair Raya Mafazy Whalen by clicking HERE

Also, the NFRW has a wonderful guide to help you with this process. Click HERE to download the guide.

Tip of the Month for Clubs
New Video
"Suggestions for Secretaries"
        Best Practices

Click HERE to get great pointers that are sure to help you become an effective club secretary.

The OFRW has prepared a form that can be used to present the monthly treasurer's report. A report should be prepared and given at each club meeting. These reports  are never approved at a meeting, as club members do not have access to receipts and statements covered in the report. The monthly treasurer's reports are simply accepted by the President and the statement made that the  report will be filed for review. A copy is then included with the minutes for that meeting. At the end of the membership year, all reports for the year should be submitted to a review committee - along with all of the supporting documentation (deposit receipts, statements, bills, monthly bank statements, etc.). The review committee should present its report covering the previous year's financila activities of the club at the first meeting of each membership year -- and this is what is given approval/acceptance (or not) by the membership. This report is also filed with the minutes of the club.
