Fernley Republican Women won the national Diamond Award for Achievement during the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) 40th Biennial Convention held Sept. 27-29 in Indianapolis. More than 400 awards were given to clubs which demonstrated excellence in several key areas.
“I am thrilled to have received this award on behalf of the Fernley Republican Women,” FRW president Lorrie Olson said. “Each club member and associate member worked extremely hard during the last two years. I am very proud of each and every one of them.”
Anita Trone, FRW member and Achievement Awards Chair of the Nevada Federation of Republican Women (NvFRW) continued by saying, “I could not be more delighted with the Nevada Republican Women. We have 17 clubs in Nevada and 13 of them won awards.”
Nevada clubs that won a Diamond Award were Active Republican Women of Las Vegas, Carson City Republican Women, Douglas County Republican Women, Fernley Republican Women, Incline Village/Crystal Bay Republican Women, Mt. Rose Republican Women, Republican Women of Reno, Sierra Nevada Republican Women, Southern Hills Republican Women, Sparks Republican Women, Spring Mountain Republican Women and Washoe Republican Women. Mesquite Republican Women won a Bronze award.
“Great job Republican women of Nevada,” Olson said.
The NFRW Achievement Awards program is designed to enhance teamwork among members of each club, said NFRW Achievement Awards Chair Linda Smith of Kansas. Using the Achievement Awards worksheet as a guide for planning club activities produces a well-balanced club program. It establishes standards of performance for membership development, campaign activities, community relations, leadership development, programs and club functions.
“We are very pleased that one-third of our clubs, representing 40 states, earned an NFRW Achievement Award this biennium,” Smith said. “It is the culmination of two years of diligent planning and hard work on the part of these club members, and we are proud to honor their efforts.”
