Meet Carrie Almond
Carrie Almond was elected President of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) at the 38th Biennial Convention in Phoenix and took office in January 2016. Previously, Almond served the NFRW as second vice president, treasurer, member-at-large, executive liaison to the Program and Public Relations committees, and director of Regions 4 and 8. She has been active in the NFRW since her involvement with the Missouri FRW, for which she served as president, first vice president, second vice president and treasurer.
During 2016, Almond directed her efforts to encouraging women to work tirelessly to take back the White House, traveling the US on the NFRW’s Destination: White House Tour aboard a red, white, and blue RV named Rosie.
Almond is also involved in her community of Chillicothe, where she served as treasurer of the Livingston County Animal Shelter for 10 years and has been active in the local arts council and rotary club. She was also the treasurer of Grace Episcopal Church, and served as chair of the Audit Committee and three terms on the Vestry.
Almond is an executive vice president of Citizens Bank & Trust, a northern Missouri bank with 20 branches in 19 towns. Additionally, she manages the family farm of more than 2,000 acres. Her banking career spans the states of South Carolina, Georgia and Florida. After graduating from the University of South Carolina, she worked for the Union Bank of Switzerland in Lausanne.
Founded in 1938, the National Federation of Republican Women is the largest and most influential Republican women’s group in the nation, proudly representing the party that first made it possible for women to vote in the U.S. The NFRW works to increase the effectiveness and relevance of women in the cause of good government. Our mission remains to recruit and elect Republican candidates, promote the principles of the Republican Party, educate the public, and inform the media.
Meet Nancy Schulze
Nancy Schulze’s national speaking career focuses on the worldview of the Founders, the unraveling of their vision, and the reclaiming and rebuilding of the “real” America. Speaking has taken Nancy to conferences, conventions, campaigns and events throughout the country and abroad.
Her career path began in New York City, with several years on the road singing principal roles in musical theatre productions. USO Tours took her overseas, one in which she played Molly in “The Unsinkable Molly Brown”. Following her marriage to 9-term Congressman Dick Schulze (PA), she became an event singer in Washington, D.C. performing from the U.S. Capitol Rotunda to Constitution Hall to Ambassadors’ Residences, at the Inaugural Prayer Service for the U.S. Congress, the Inaugural Prayer Service for the Governor of New York, Galas for First Ladies of the United States, et cetera. Nancy’s one woman show of World War II and patriotic music brought standing ovations in Statuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol.
In 2008, Nancy founded the Republican Congressional Wives Speakers, with seminars for the wives featuring top experts in the fields of speaking, media training and thought leadership. During the last 3 weeks of the 2016 elections, she organized and produced the “Women for Trump” Bus Tour which made 30 stops in the critical state of North Carolina and generated significant national press coverage. Eleven Congressional wives took part in the tour which, according to Campaign Co-Chairman Steve Bannon, turned the election for Trump in North Carolina.
