GENERAL FEDERATION OF WOMEN’S CLUBS
MIDDLE ATLANTIC REGION
Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania
The General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC), one of the world's largest and oldest nonpartisan, nondenominational, women's volunteer service organizations, was founded in 1890 and chartered by the 56th United States Congress in 1901.
GFWC's eight regions hold annual conferences in the fall to share ideas, learn current GFWC information, attend workshops, and conduct important business, including elections. It's the perfect time to enjoy fun, festivities, and Federation friends. The GFWC International President and GFWC President-elect attend each of the eight region conferences.
