PRWC was organized in 1968 with 41 charter members. February 1994 the Club became affiliated with Arizona Federation of Republican Women. November 2007 Las Rancheras Republican Women’s Club voted unanimously to join forces with PRWC for a stronger, more effective Paradise Republican Women’s Club.
Members have served as President of the Arizona Federation of Republican Women (AzFRW) and on the Board of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW).
PRWC members have a long history in politics as Governor, Senate/House of Representatives, Superintendent of Public Instruction, Board of Supervisors, State Treasurer, Arizona Corporation Commission members, Judge, Constable, Maricopa County Community College Board, City Council members, County and State Republican Party Executive Committees, Arizona Presidential Electors and Platform Delegates to Republican National Convention.
We are a diverse group of artists, attorneys, business owners, campaign managers, corporate executives, doctors, elected officials, engineers, interior designers, lobbyists, ministers, mothers and grandmothers, nurses, realtors, recording artists, retirees, stockbrokers, teachers, web designers, and writers.
We have a promising future ahead as we delve into issues, study party activities and keep alive our great Republican heritage.
