GFWC Florida

Young and old enjoy Federation Friendship! From teens through more "mature" women, we have found working together in our communities to be fulfilling and rewarding and our communities benefit. Look at the variety of programs we have, see the areas we're involved in, come and join us and especially enjoy the friendship.

Attention: Regarding dues

Chrissy Fry, GFWC Headquarters Executive Director, has completed the emailing of all club membership lists to email addresses on file at Headquarters. Note: If you have not received your club's information, please contact Chrissy at

As a reminder, dues are $23, and are due by December 31, 2014. Members pay dues throughout the year, and with non-interest bearing club checking accounts, there is no incentive to hold those payments until December 31.

Please consider returning your reconciled membership lists and Remittance Form early, once you have completed the reconciliation process, thereby freeing up your officers to enjoy the holidays having this project behind them. You will earn Honor Score points by returning your updated membership list, your dues and contributions to HQ.

Purchase an AD for Spring convention booklet

Purchase an AD in the Spring Convention Program
We will be celebrating GFWC Florida's 120th Birthday at the
Spring Convention - May 15-17, 2015
Our Special Guest will be:
GFWC President Babs Condon

May seems a long way off, but it is not too soon to give thought to recognizing your club president whose term is ending, or that special member who has made a difference in your club. Honoring them with an ad in our Program Book lets them and everyone else know just how much you appreciate them, and it's something they can share with pride with family and friends. If your club is celebrating a special anniversary, you may want to shout out this milestone to the rest of GFWC Florida with an ad touting the years of service your club has given to your community. Or perhaps there's a member you wish to recognize with a lifetime achievement ad, honoring her dedication to your club, GFWC Florida and your community. How about asking an outside business to take an AD?

We all like to feel appreciated, and it can be especially gratifying to see how much our Club or District appreciates us when we see our name and information in print in an ad. When we place ads, we not only give support to GFWC Florida, more importantly we give a "job well done" pat on the back to the member, Club or District, and we show pride in our accomplishments and milestones.

The program book size is 8 ½ x 11. The ad sizes and prices are as follow: $125.00 full page, $100.00 half page, $50.00 quarter page. We are also offering a back page ad for only $200.00! First come first served, as they say! Please see form for details and here to order.
