The Nashville Republican Women have been continuously active since 1949.
We have logged thousands and thousands of hours participating in campaigns, supported Republican candidates and helped build the Republican party. From stuffing envelopes, making phone calls, knocking on doors, establishing and maintaining headquarters, and greeting voters at the polls, to serving in leadership positions at the national, state and local levels, we have supported our candidates. Several of our members have run for various offices.
It’s not all about politics. For the past 13 years, we have provided toys (and sometimes warm coats) to the Children of Tennessee Soldiers and the Fisher House at Fort Campbell has twice been the recipient of generous donations from NRW, (The Fisher House provides military families with housing close to a loved one during hospitalization for an illness, disease or injury).
We hope you will join us.

Special Guest Speaker
Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett
Tre Hargett was elected by the Tennessee General Assembly to serve as Tennessee’s 37th secretary of state in 2009 and re-elected in 2013, 2017 and 2021. Secretary Hargett is the chief executive officer of the Department of State with oversight of more than 300 employees. He also serves on 14 boards and commissions, on two of which he is the presiding member. The services and oversight found in the Secretary of State’s office reach every department and agency in state government.
Accuracy, cost-effectiveness and accountability drive every decision within the department. Secretary Hargett places a premium on customer service while leveraging technology to create efficiencies that benefit taxpayers with a customer-centered approach to state government.
Under Secretary Hargett’s leadership, the department has implemented a massive overhaul of its technological abilities to embrace customers online. The department offers Tennesseans online voter registration and the GoVoteTN mobile app to help increase voter registration, turnout and awareness.
A redesigned website, found at sos.tn.gov, offers a wealth of information and services, including an intuitive online corporate filing system, a place where consumers can learn how their charitable contributions are being spent and resources to promote civic engagement across Tennessee.
He also continues to promote the vast resources of the Tennessee State Library and Archives. Thanks to his work with the Tennessee General Assembly, the Library and Archives is slated to move to a new facility on the Bicentennial Mall where it can better serve all Tennesseans while preserving the state’s history.
In 2010, Secretary Hargett was chosen as a Henry Toll Fellow, an honor given to 40 of the nation’s top state government officials. Additionally, he is a member and former president of the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS), on the board of directors of the YMCA Center for Civic Engagement, a member of the Union University Advisory Board, as well as former chairman of the executive committee of the Republican Secretaries of State Committee (RSSC). Secretary Hargett has also been recognized for his support of National History Day.
Previously, he served as chairman of the Tennessee Regulatory Authority. Before joining the Tennessee Regulatory Authority he was regional vice president for a publicly traded emergency services provider.
Secretary Hargett served in the Tennessee House of Representatives for a decade representing District 97 (Bartlett and Memphis) and was twice elected Republican Leader by his colleagues.
