About The New Hampshire Federation of Republican Women

The New Hampshire Federation of Republican Women is the largest grassroots Republican women’s organization in New Hampshire. We are the Official New Hampshire Chapter of the National Federation of Republican Women. We received our National FRW Charter in 1944 and have been empowering women since then. Our State Federation consists of 7 clubs throughout New Hampshire and we are hard at work creating more clubs. Within the State Federation we have an Executive Board with leaders from across the state and an Advisory Board which consists of the Club Presidents and appointed chairs/directors (scroll down to meet everyone!)

Our Executive Board meetings are on the first Tuesday of the month at 6pm. The Advisory Board meets quarterly.
