First Lady Laura Bush invited the Board of Regents of the National Federation of Republican Women to the White House for tea again on March 28, 2007. This was the sixth  time that Mrs. Bush has extended this invitation to the Board of Regents of NFRW. There were about 200 Regents from all across the country attending this glorious event where they had the opportunity to meet Mrs. Bush individually, shake her hand and have a photograph made with her.

The official photo of Mrs. Bush with the individual state Regents and Capitol Regents  will be available to each attendee in May of 2007. Read First Lady's Biography

Launch to Victory Meeting - March 30, 2007  -  8 a.m.
Capitol Regents and Regents


Launch to Victory, a five-year financial plan for the NFRW, was passed by the Board of Directors and launched during the meeting. The plan includes the goals of increasing levels to 200,000 sustaining members, 400 Regents, 100 Capitol Regents and 30,000 donors. Election goals include training more candidates and campaign workers, and sending more strike force volunteers to work in targeted states.

Below are photos from this most informative session:

President Beverly Davis introduces Dennis Whitfield, who has conducted an extensive study to determine the financial needs of NFRW for the next five years. He gave a very informative slide show presentation with many facts and figures. The figures he gave were based on goals of 200,000 Sustaining Members and 30,000 active donors. This would impact the election of 12 more U.S. House seats, 4 U.S. Senate races, 4 Governor races and 4 seats critical to the presidential race. We would need 400 Regents and 100 Capitol Regents.

Above: Regents and Capitol Regents listen to the presentation and ask a number of questions. Personal contributions for this project were already being made before the end of the session. Mr. Whitfield has served as a Political Director for the RNC
