Welcome to Convention

Welcome From the President

Dear GFWC Friends,

After last year’s astounding convention in Atlanta, I can hardly wait for the thrill of gathering together for the 2022 Annual Convention in New Orleans on June 25-28. World-famous for its lively music, creative cuisine, and vibrant nightlife, as well as its multi-cultural heritage and festivals, “The Big Easy” offers something for everyone.

In this Call to Convention, you will find the proposed amendments to the GFWC Bylaws and Resolutions, information about tours and speakers, and the complete convention schedule that is jam-packed with the personal development and club enhancement opportunities our members have come to expect. Look for exciting business sessions that inform members and engage them in shaping the future of the organization, enlightening workshops provided by GFWC leaders and Affiliate Organizations, amazing celebrations and awards, and times to share, socialize, and connect with one another.

The theme for this year’s event is “Catch the Volunteer Spirit and Let the Good Times Roll!” Our convention host, GFWC South Central Region, is planning to roll out the red carpet with a “Fais do-do” Celebration Banquet that will bring the best of New Orleans to our tables and have us dancing to a Cajun beat. The fun continues throughout the weekend with Saturday’s Junior Fun Night, Sunday’s Region Banquets, Monday’s Grand Gala, and Tuesday’s 2022-2024 Installation events.

Of the many gifts that GFWC has given me, one of the greatest has been the opportunity to travel to GFWC meetings across the country, meet thousands of clubwomen, and experience and enjoy the many things that unite us. Our time together has helped me see that working together not only builds communities, it builds strong, caring, and capable women, too. How lucky we are, to step outside of our everyday routine once each year and come together in friendship and earnest pursuit of improving the lives of others.

Explore the pages that follow and imagine the possibilities and view the preliminary agenda! You do not want to miss this chance to “Catch the Volunteer Spirit and Let the Good Times Roll!”
