The NFRW will gather in Washington, D.C. for their Spring Board Meeting on March 22-24, 2018. Included in their schedule is a Legislative Day at the US Capitol on March 22, 2018.

You are welcome to attend portions of the Board Meeting. There is a block of rooms at the Crystal Gateway Marriott (800-228- 9290 or 703-920- 3230) in Arlington, VA Tell them you are with the NFRW when you make your reservation.

Cathy is planning on going and would love to have some traveling companions. On Wednesday after you arrive we could tour around Washington, shop, and eat together.

The Legislative Day is planned on Thursday, March 22 from 7:00 am to 3:30 pm. It is a great time to visit your representatives in Washington.

NFRW Legislative Day at the U.S. Capitol gives Republican women from across the nation the opportunity to be briefed directly by Members of Congress on current legislation, to attend committee hearings and other legislative events, to meet with members of their state’s congressional delegation, and to present a united front where we make their collective voices heard on issues.
