Download the GFWC App!
June 7, 2017
By GFWC Communications and Public Relations Chairman Darlene C. Adams
Looking to find new ways to promote your local club? The Communications and Public Relations Committee has a suggestion – the GFWC App! When you download the GFWC App you can immediately begin to post pictures of the wonderful volunteer work your club is doing. Similarly, it is a great way to advertise upcoming events and recognize members. The more you post, the more points you can earn. Currently in first place on the Leaderboard is Dori Kelsey with GFWC California. Dori knows the value of using the GFWC App. Way to go Dori!
The GFWC App is also a useful tool for other GFWC information. With one tap, you can review the GFWC Bylaws, GFWC Club Manual, Legislative Action Center, GFWC Top Ten Projects and learn about the GFWC Administration and our GFWC Partners. You can even preview and order from the GFWC Marketplace, subscribe to the GFWC Clubwoman Magazine, sign up for GFWC News and Notes and connect to GFWC social media outlets, such as Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Any questions, you are one touch away to the GFWC Staff Directory.
The GFWC App takes it one step further and has complete information to the 2017 GFWC Annual Convention in Palm Springs, California right at your fingertips. From the agenda to convention speakers, its service project, exhibitors and sponsors, you will be able to navigate easily throughout the convention. Post pictures during convention and check the App daily for any Convention updates, etc.
GFWC is giving members another communication tool with the GFWC App. Join in the fun, building relationships with members near and far by downloading the GFWC App now to your IPhone or Android at www.GFWC.org/news/gfwc-app-launched.
Just like Dori Kelsey, you too can publicize the great things your club is doing as well as have valuable GFWC information at your fingertips.

Serving as MVR President has been a wonderful experience. I’ve been able to work with members from my own state of Missouri for my first Region Conference and from Iowa for my second Regional Conference. Having been able to get to know our International President, President-elect, and the Presidents from the other 7 Regions has been an enlightening and wonderful experience. I’ve learned so very much from each of them!
Success For Survivors Scholarship
Each year, GFWC awards scholarships to help intimate partner abuse survivors obtain a post-secondary education that offers a chance to reshape their future by securing employment and gaining personal independence.
GFWC Millington Junior Women's Club
Each year April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Kathleen Sweeney, Executive Director/Forensic Interviewer of The Child Advocacy Center of Tuscola County (CACTC), spoke at GFWC Millington Junior Women's Club (Michigan) monthly meeting and told members that 10% of the 235 reported cases of child abuse in 2017 in Tuscola County were from Millington Township, including Millington. It inspired them to take action with the "Color Me Blue" Project.
