The Nevada Federation affiliated with the NFRW in 1950 and is organized into two districts (north and south) with a total of 20 clubs and more than 1,200 members. Four board meetings are held every two-year cycle, and the biennial convention is held in the fall of odd years.
The NvFRW has an active Regents program (created in 1989), hosts a biennial Legislative Day, and supports legislative advocacy programs and campaign management schools. Clubs organize and participate in get-out-the-vote efforts, candidate recruitment, lobbying the state legislature, Constitutional workshops and Lincoln Day events.
Many members are active in Republican Party activities, precinct organization and Republican conventions. Clubs and members sponsor picnics, barbeques and other events for candidates, as well as engage in community service activities that benefit senior citizens, abused women, the homeless, literacy programs and Habitat for Humanity. Veteran outreach plays an important role for clubs as they raise money to purchase and train dogs for veterans, participate in Wreaths Across America at our Northern and Southern Veteran Memorial Cemeteries, and provide personal care items for overseas military personnel.
