You are welcome here…our journey continues.

A Message from your President…

The Federation is an umbrella organization. It breaks down into regions then states, districts and clubs. As your district president I see that the purpose of a district is to engage members from small clubs and large clubs, from the newest clubs to the oldest clubs and from big city clubs to rural clubs. It is a time for all of us to come together to recognize accomplishments, to share ideas, to inspire all to become more involved and to create a vision of GFWC GA beyond the club level all in the spirit of a memorable fellowship experience. My job is not to give you more work to do but to provide you with resources to make your job easier. At our board meetings there will be concrete ideas for Club Presidents to take back to their membership. Our priorities will be to help you build your membership and find unique ways to interact with your communities. The goal for this administration is to increase our membership and attendance at meetings and conventions by 10%. This may seem daunting in an era where our memberships are declining but the fact is volunteerism is rising. Today’s volunteers however want meaningful experiences. The NW Board will work diligently to provide your clubs with these meaningful experiences whereby you can invite family and friends to participate in the volunteer activities of your clubs and experience the fun, rewarding and very important work that GFWC Georgia and the North West District provides to our communities. Our state special project this year is the Girl Scouts. You will find quotes and facts about the Girl Scouts in this handbook to share and inspire your members. As Juliette Gordon Low said.. ”And Girl Scouting is not just knowing…but doing…not just doing, but being.”
