Celebrating Over 60 Years of Republican Activities




President’s Greeting:

I am deeply honored for the opportunity to serve as President of the Chevy Chase Women’s Republican Club and hope we have a productive and satisfying year. As Ronald Reagan once commented, “Surround yourself with the best people you can find, delegate authority and don’t interfere.” I certainly have found great people and hope to do as he recommended.

As CCWRC Presidents before me, my goals for the year are to keep increasing the membership, continue our community involvement and promote Republican values. I will work with as many members as possible in the realization of these goals and have a good time in the process.

I look forward to seeing you at the club’s monthly events which are planned to provide a broad and varied agenda of interest to all. I ask our loyal members to continue their support for the success of our organization by participating in our club’s political, charitable and social activities.

Joan Pleiman, President CCWRC

Ambassador Ellen Sauerbrey Captured the Audience at CCWRC's Meet and Greet Luncheon

She spoke on the importance of the 2016 election and why Republicans need to Unite and and Vote for our Republican Nominee

Ellen Sauerbrey, educator, legislator and diplomat, was a member of the House of Delegates and has served as House Minority Leader. President George W. Bush in 2001-2 appointed Ellen as delegate to the UN Commission on Human Right and as Representative to the UN Commission on the Status of Women of the Economic and Social Council with the status of Ambassador. She emphasized all the negative impact Hillary would have on the values and individual rights afforded Americans and why Republicans must elect Trump.

CCWRC Member Katie Holland Receives Prestigious MCGOP Award


First voting Republican in 1992 Katie Holland's political venue has significantly changed from her former lifetime Democrat days to actively become involved with Republican County and State candidate campaigns. Katie worked in the Michael Steele 2010 campaign as well as in the race of a CD4 candidate against Donna Edwards. She then attended the 2012 MoCo GOP convention becoming convinced of her affinity with Republican ideals thus changing her registration from Democrat to Republican. After volunteer work with the Hogan campaign she joined the Hogan transition Annapolis office.

Presently Katie "zeroes in" as she reports on building LD20 for the GOP, volunteering to increase voter awareness of qualified, capable Republican candidates for office-- thus winning this award.
