The Matanuska Susitna Valley was fairly new in the 1940s! The majority of folks were Democrats and yet there were enough amazing Republican women who decided to do something about that! We are thankful!
Over the years it grew and became a member of the National Federation of Republican Women. From there they helped our Club establish the Alaska Federation of Republican Women. We were members of these amazing organizations until 2019 when we voted to exit both. Because we were unable to be an affiliate of the Alaska Republican Party if we were in the Federations, we chose to make that decision to leave and apply to become an affiliate of the ARP. We are very supportive of the missions of both Federations, but feel we need to be commited to our State Party.
Our Mission Statement:
Our purpose is to promote an informed electorate, to recruit women for elective office (local, state & national), to promote loyalty to the Republican Party and to work for the election of Republican candidates.
Our members are women, men and teens. Women ages 16 years and up can join as a member. Our members have the ability to hold an office in our Club and to be a part of the voting on many important issues. Associate members are men, teens from 13 to 15 years old and some women who choose this option. You can join online or send a check or money order in to our P.O. Box.
There are many ways for our members/associates to get involved! Come to our monthly meetings to meet and get to know each other as well as our legislators, public officials and informative speakers. While there you may hear of something that is right up your alley! When we plan a fundraising event like the recent 2020 Vision Dinner & Auction, it takes many hands to bring it to fruition. Volunteers for the Planning Committee are always needed! This committee rounds up auction items, helps with decorations, creates flyers etc., sell tickets, etc. During the Alaska State Fair, our members 'work' convenient & fun shifts together as our Club represesnts the Republicans of our state at the Fair. During the elections we try to help our candidates. They have many ways we can help; making phone calls, stuffing envelopes, addressing & stamping them, etc.
If you are interested in being a volunteer & getting notified when we are needing help, please click on the Contact Tab & send us your name, phone & email so we can stay in touch with you.
Volunteering builds great friendships!
