Our youth represent the future of our organization, our state, and our country.
A heartfelt thank you, to everyone reaching out to our organization. Thank you, TFDW Regional Vice-Presidents for jumping right in, and getting on with the work required to move our organization forward. Thank you, to former Federation Presidents, Myra Stiles, Natalie McCullough, Betty Reddick and Jennie Carter for all of your help over the last three months. Thank you, to TNDP Chair, Mary Mancini and National Federation of Democratic Women President, Susanna French.
Federation members, there is so much work to be done. If you have not been asked to chair a committee, or act as a resource, I am waiting to hear from you. One of the most critical committees, YOUTH OUTREACH, has not been filled. I am waiting to hear from that dynamic Democrat that will do amazing things with it.
In this organization, everybody counts, everyone has a voice. One of my goals is to get more people involved by asking them to step-up and chair committees. That does not mean old chairs are not needed, we need you more than ever to act as resource persons to them, to our organization. I am also reaching out to former leaders in this organization that for whatever reason, are no longer with us.
Over the last several years we have lost clubs. YOU are needed to help re-organize them by developing leads for our Vice-Presidents. The mid-term elections are coming up. Identify neighborhoods in your communities where we need to focus on getting people registered to vote .... ladies, there is so much work to do. Are YOU ready to help us get it done?
Glenda F. Carter, TFDW President

MADISON AREA DEMOCRATIC WOMEN
Federation sisters, I promised you that if you elected me Federation president, I would work hard for this organization, I am. This is not a job for the faint at heart, I am not. With that said, I could accomplish nothing without the help of my Regional Vice Presidents, supporting officers past presidents, and our wonderful club presidents across the state.
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce our newest Democratic Women's Club, The Madison Area Democratic Women. They are a very diverse group in every sense of the word. They are bringing an enormous amount of talent to our organization. College professors, former judiciary member, business owners, community activists, retirees, support coordinators, but most importantly, hardworking DEMOCRATS. Last night the chant was "fired-up, ready to go." I will be working closely with both clubs in Madison County.
I would also like to publicly thank West Tennessee Federation Vice President, Telise Turner, for doing an outstanding job installing the officers. Vice President Turner presented each officer with a certificate and a red rose after swearing them in.
In West Tennessee, we are going after Henderson County next as we already have a strong leader reaching out to us in that county.
Our Middle and East Tennessee Vice Presidents are working hard as well. There is nothing that we cannot accomplish if we continue to work together.
