LFRW Leadership Manual Committee

The Chair of this Committee is working to restore a publication that the LFRW used in the past - LFRW’S Leadership Manual to be given to every club in the federation.  The Manual will offer the necessary resources for leadership training and for the planning of statewide conventions.

After reviewing the NFRW Leadership Manual and the old LFRW Leadership Manual, the Chair of this Committee will work with the Presidents and other officers on the Executive Committee to produce an up-to-date leadership publication.  The Chair will also prepare the Manual for publication and will distribute the completed publication at an LFRW Board Meeting.  The Manual will also have the capability of being downloaded on the new LFRW website.


The Manual will be stored electronically for later revisions.
