GFWC Pennsylvania clubwomen are encouraged to showcase their club’s activities by submitting a record or report that summarizes the projects and programs that have been undertaken during the previous calendar year.  Club reports are submitted annually.  When you take the time to write and submit reports you are, essentially, recording your club’s history.

 

DEADLINES

Club Presidents: Your reports must be compiled, printed, and postmarked by February 1, 2022, and mailed via (snail mail) to this officer.

State Chairmen:  Your reports must be compiled, postmarked by March 1, 2022, and sent via email to this officer. State Chairman will forward approved reports to their GFWC counterparts via email by March 15, 2022.

Note:  State Chairman’s Reporting Guidelines will be provided in a separate document.

Awards and Recognition will be presented at our 2022 State Convention in May.  

What Information Should Be Included?

GFWC Pennsylvania’s reporting period is based on the calendar year (January – December), so every project and program carried out within that timeframe should be presented.  Each narrative will include:  details about the project; number of members participating; volunteer hours of clubwomen; dollars donated; dollars raised; dollars spent; and total number of projects or programs within each area. Think who, what, where, when, and how.

 

SUBMITTING YOUR REPORTS 

All club reports are compiled and submitted to Donna Malone, Second Vice President and Reporting Chairman by February 1, 2022.  The reports are then distributed to the appropriate State Chairman who will review and recommend outstanding projects and programs for recognition and awards.  A maximum of four pages of the narrative is allowed per Community Service Project, Special Project or Advancement Area.

Have questions, need help or don’t know where to start?  Contact Donna Malone, Reporting Chairman!
