Marlborough – The General Federation of Women’s Clubs’ (GFWC) Executive Committee, led by International President Babs J. Condon and President-elect Sheila Shea, a Marlborough resident, attended a White House briefing Jan. 21. Key administration staffers engaged with GFWC leaders for an informative dialogue that encompassed a variety of issues and initiatives, including domestic violence, early childhood education and veterans’ issues.

“GFWC was honored to have such an opportunity to discuss with the White House vital issues that have literally shaped our federation through the years,” Condon said. “We are proud to have an audience with the White House on these issues that are of such importance to us all as Americans. We look forward to working with the administration and position GFWC as an agent of positive change for the future just as we have been for 125 years.”

The committee received an overview on issues from Hallie Schneir, deputy director of the White House Council on Women and Girls; Julie Chavez Rodriguez, deputy director of Public Engagement; Kyle Lierman, associate director of Public Engagement; and Dr. Tiffany McNair, MD, MPH, a White House fellow in the Office of the Vice President.

“As an organization dedicated to community improvement, we must take time to discuss important topics that impact the quality of life for all – especially those related to women and girls, early childhood education, and veterans’ services. With more than 3,000 clubs and 100,000 members across the country and internationally, GFWC is uniquely positioned to educate communities about administration initiatives in these areas.”
