Countdown to GFWC National Convention

We are just a little over a month out from the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC) annual National Convention and Shot@Life is proud to be a part of this year’s festivities. The conference will take place in Baltimore, MD and we look forward to connecting with the nearly 1000 GFWC clubwomen in attendance.

The National Conference is the culmination point of the GFWC Lifesaver Awards Program! Over 135 clubs in 45 states participated in the program this year raising over $40, 000 to provide children in the developing world with lifesaving vaccines that they would otherwise not have access to.

We are proud to be a partner of GFWC and we look forward to the various activities taking place at the event!

  1. Shot@Life Exhibition Booth: Stop by our booth to learn about Shot@Life, the 2016-17 Awards Program and to pick-up and take a picture with your Lifesaver Awards!
  2. Shot@Life: Drop to Zero Workshops: New this year! Shot@Life will be launching the new awards program with an exciting challenge to help end Polio forever. Stop by our workshop to learn how you can help drop global polio prevalence to zero by participating in our virtual 5k on World Polio Day (October 24, 2016)! GFWC Leaders like Janet Trombetti and Nancy Jones plan to speak on their experiences abroad and on fundraising and fighting polio!
  3. Shot@Life Awards Banquet: We will announce the top five winners of the 2015 -2016 Awards Program and Lifesaver State Program at the National Convention. In addition we will recognize every club who has raised $125+ and states who have raised $625+. Mark your calendars for the luncheon on June 29th at 1:00pm now!
