OFFICIAL CALL TO 2019 MFRW FALL CONVENTION
In accordance with the Bylaws of the Maryland Federation of Republican Women (MFRW), Article XII, Section 2, I hereby call the MFRW Fall Convention (and Fall Board of Directors Meeting) to be held at the Turf Valley Hotel and Conference Center in Ellicott City, MD (Howard County) on November 1 – 2, 2019. Friday Registration opens at 2:00PM. Saturday Registration opens at 7:30AM.
The theme for this year’s Fall Convention is “The Power of Our Women” The media and the liberal left would have you believe that Republicans are waging a war on women and that they don’t like women. Well, we are WOMEN and we are REPUBLICANS and we are POWERFUL!
All Club Presidents, MFRW Standing and Special Committee Chairs, MFRW Regional Chairs, MFRW Elected officers, and MFRW past presidents who are members of the MFRW are members of the Board of Directors. If you hold one of these positions, attendance at our Fall Convention Board of Directors meetings is required. A Club President may send a proxy to the meeting on her behalf. The proxy must be a full member in good standing of that club.
All members (both full and associate) are welcome and encouraged to attend both the Board of Directors meeting and the General Session of the Convention, as well as all other convention activities.
At this convention, credentialed delegates will be electing officers for the 2020-2022 term and voting on some Bylaws amendments. Each club president (of a club in good standing) is automatically awarded one delegate spot. Each club is then awarded one delegate per every 5 members as of June 30, 2019. All club presidents will be sent the number of delegates awarded to their club. I encourage all clubs to send their full delegation in order to have the full strength of their vote!
