The DFW Federal Club was recognized as the “Best Federal Club Committee of the Year” during the HRC Spring Equality Convention held last month in Washington, D.C.
The annual convention brings together HRC members from around the country to learn about HRC’s national plans and about what’s happening in specific cities and states around the country, as well as to share best practices and showcase working strategies.
A total of 15 people from the DFW Federal Club’s board of directors, board of governors, governing committee and steering committee attended the three-day convention. Vice President Joe Biden keynoted the opening night plenary session, linking the March on Selma to Stonewall and pledging the Obama administration’s support to the LGBT communities.
In addition to the Best Federal Club Committee of the Year honor, the DFW Federal Club also received the Best Membership Outreach Program of the Year (Steering Committee) and Top “Strive for Five” Club awards. The DFW club was also the only federal club to have recruited members in every month of the year and was recognized for special achievement in support of HRC-endorsed candidates and extraordinary partnership for a dinner (HRC-Black Tie).
