GFWC/Internet Service Providers

Hello. Welcome to the web site of the GFWC/Internet Service Providers (ISPs). We are an internet-based general membership club of the General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC) and the GFWC/Ohio Federation of Women's Clubs.

Contact us at gfwcglr@sbcglobal.net

WHY AN INTERNET CLUB?

If you are "homebound" for whatever reason (caring for family, work restrictions, physical restrictions) or cannot attend General Federation of Women's Clubs club meetings in your town (there are no clubs and you cannot start one, you work when they meet, whatever reason) then this may just be the place for you to give back to your community. If you are familiar with the General Federation of Women's Clubs and/or are an active member in another Federated club or a former member with no club with easy access or just want to meet when it is convenient for you, this may a club for you. Previous membership in a Federated club is not necessary. NEW MEMBERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME. If you want to give back to your community, but feel you just "don't have the time" to go to meetings, this may be the club for you. EVEN IF YOU BELONG TO ANOTHER FEDERATED CLUB, YOU ARE WELCOME HERE. Membership is not limited to one club. If you want more - more program ideas, more Federation friends, more project ideas - this is the place for you.

WHO ARE WE?

The club is an active, dues paying per capita club of the GFWC/Ohio Federation of Women's Clubs with the full rights of that membership.

In keeping with the Constitution of the state organization, the club shall be non-profit, non-partisan and non-sectarian. The purpose of the club is to bring women into closer relation with one another in order to promote through their common interest the general welfare of the state (and nation, for that matter) and to afford facilities for the helpful interchange of ideas and methods.

WHEN DO WE MEET?

Our meetings take place via e-mail with a "real, in person" meeting at the meetings of the Ohio and/or General Federation of Women's Clubs meetings. You may be wondering just when the club will meet. Whenever it is convenient for you. Anytime day or night. Our official meeting date is the first day of the month - the information will come to your e-mail address. We also have a Yahoo group site.

WHO CAN JOIN?

Membership is currently limited to women over the age of 18 who have access to the internet (hence the name). Residency in Ohio is not necessary - we welcome anyone - but the club is a member of that state's organization and a member of the Central Ohio River District, as that is the location of it's founding and geographically covers the largest area of the state.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

You may be wondering just what you can do as a member of the internet club. You can save pop tabs for Ronald McDonald houses, support various projects by spreading the word, join ESO (our reading sorority), write your legislators concerning proposed legislation, assist with free donations on the internet, save commemorative stamps and card fronts for other volunteer groups and study a variety of topics - the list goes on. There are things that you, as a member, can do that can be done by any dues paying per capita member who attends monthly meetings. You will be able to take part in the projects and contests of the Federation. You will be eligible to attend district, state, regional and international meetings. You will be eligible hold office and chairmanships.

HOW MUCH WILL THIS COST ME?

Dues are the state and national dues, plus $5 for operating the club. All that and it's under $35 a year. Other monetary donations are optional.

Yes, it might cost you a little "free" time, but it is a great education and a way you can give back to your community.

Join an active volunteer club and help us help others.
