ALEXANDRIA, Va. – A local Republican woman leader will serve on the Board of Directors of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) during the 2016-2017 term.


NFRW President Carrie Almond has appointed Susan Wynn Bence of Watseka, Illinois to the Board of Directors representing the state of Illinois.


“With the 2016 elections just months away, the NFRW is gearing up to help Republicans across the country win races at the local, state and national levels,” Almond said. “We are pleased that Susan is going to play a key role in this effort by sharing her talents and ideas with our members across the nation.”


Susan joined the NFRW in the late 1990s and has been significantly involved ever since. She is the past president of the Iroquois County Republican Women’s Club. She took office as the President of the Illinois Federation of Republican Women (IFRW) on January 1st. Susan has also served the IFRW as membership chairman prior to becoming the 2nd Vice President in 2014.


Recently, Susan served as the Chief of Staff and Campaign Manager for former State Representative Josh Harms and Chief of Staff to State Representative Tom Bennett before accepting her current position as the Springfield Director for Illinois Lieutenant Governor, Evelyn Sanguinetti.


“I believe that our key mission should include growing our membership and cultivating public awareness on the local, state and national levels,” Susan said. “We need to provide education on Republican values and engage, empower, and encourage woman at all levels to seek public office.”


Founded in 1938, the NFRW has thousands of active members in local clubs across the nation, making it one of the largest women’s political organizations in the country. The grassroots organization works to promote the principles and objectives of the Republican Party, elect Republican candidates, inform the public through political education and activity, and increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government.
