POLITICAL EDUCATION & ACTION
Monthly Meetings: Our monthly luncheons and occasional dinners, feature interesting and informative guest speakers. It is also an opportunity to network and enjoy the company of other people in the community.
Newsletters, Website, Links: WVRWF publishes an informative newsletter called "The Trumpet" and keeps its website updated with important and current information. Members also receive "action alerts" should some pending legislation require our attention.
Registering Voters: The most important job we do is registering Republican voters. We do this at the Thousand Oaks Mall, Conejo Valley Days Fair, Ventura County Fair, and at Naturalization ceremonies where immigrants are sworn in as U.S. citizens. For more info, go here.
Campaigns: Our members often assist our elected Republican representatives with mailings and by walking precincts. We have a committee specifically charged with facilitating this effort.
Advocacy Program: The California Federation of Republican Women has a registered lobbyist in Sacramento to keep us informed andpromote those issues important to their membership. Once a year, during the Spring Conference and Board Meeting, we sponsor high school students who, along with interested members, meet in Sacramento and spend one day working with the members of the California State Legislature followed by the Spring Conference and Board Meeting where the members, guests and students hear from legislators on progress in the State Capitol. For more info, go here.
MELP Book Award: Mamie Eisenhower Library Project MELP award. Every year we donate books to area schools that inspire patriotism and foster knowledge of American History.
Conejo Elementary School: Since 2001, we have donated new books to their School Library. In addition we have collected hundreds of dollars towards the purchase of new books by the Conejo Elementary School librarian at scholastic book fairs. WVRWF members often read to the first grade students in the library. We have received national recognition for our Literary program, receiving 2nd place honors from NFRW in 2010.
