Although the Montana Federation affiliated with the NFRW in 1938, Republican women's clubs were active earlier. According to a 1971 history, the GOP was at a low point in 1936, and Party leaders felt that a new approach was necessary. The Montana Party turned to Republican women's clubs for help at the precinct level. Mrs. L.O. Evans, National Committeewoman from Montana, began organizing the clubs. Mrs. Burley Miller, Mrs. Lynde Catlin, Mrs. Ray Dockery and Gladys Gullard, all of whom later served as state president, met and organized the Montana Federation. Over the years, the only continuing Party organizations in some counties have been Republican women's clubs.

The Montana Federation is divided into twelve regions and has 12 clubs. Members host candidate events, raise money, donate funds, and operate get-out-the-vote efforts. Clubs sponsor awareness campaigns in their communities and participate in fairs and parades.

State President

MTFRW President Heidi Roedel — I am a wife, mother of four children, and a business woman. I have been involved with Republican Women since my husband's deployment to Iraq in 2005. My positions have been District Director, MTFRW Public Relations, and MTFRW Vice President. I have also been active with our local Central Committee and Glacier Pachyderm Club. On the national level, I have served on a couple committees – Caring for America and the Technology Committee. What I enjoy in politics is working with quality Republican candidate. In the process of working on candidate's campaigns, I get to know them and their families and see the sacrifices they make and their love for our country.
