Sallie McKelvey will continue to lead Intermountain Republican Women Federated (IRWF).

Installation of the organization’s 2012 executive board was during the Dec. 16 meeting at the San Vicente Golf Resort.

In addition to McKelvey, executive board officers include: Mary Kafka, vice president–programs; Sandy Hurlburt, recording secretary; Rachael Gilmore, treasurer; Bonnie Munt, ways and means; and Sean Tenwolde, membership. Rachel Meyer, out-going president of the San Diego County Federation of Republican Women and a Ramona resident and past IRWF president, presided at the installation ceremony.

IRWF is affiliated with the National Federation of Republican Women, the largest all-volunteer women’s partisan political organization in the country.

“Our strength comes from diversity of opinion, ethnicities and backgrounds, and our power from our grassroots activism,” said McKelvey. “Our mission is to see women from all age groups and walks of life as key players at the political table on national, state and local issues. We encourage our members to be informed so they can become role models to younger women.”

IRWF offers the opportunity each year for high school seniors to participate in its scholarship program. Locally they provide gifts from their membership to needy families during the Christmas holiday and send good-will packages to deployed service personnel from our community.

“We participate and serve countless hours volunteering in our local library, senior center and our churches,” said McKelvey.

All are welcome to attend one of the group’s lunch meetings, usually held on the fourth Monday of the month.

“Our speakers are chosen from the political arena, from women in leadership positions and ordinary people of outstanding acumen,” said McKelvey.
