The OFRW convention committee is pleased to announce that National President Rae Lynne Chornenky will be one of our special guest speakers. President Chornenky is just coming off her own convention held in Louisville, KY celebrating NFRW's 75th anniversary. Our delegates and guests will hear from her the highlights of the national convention and the importance of the upcoming elections.
Rae Lynne Chornenky
Rae Lynne Chornenky of Arizona was elected NFRW president at the 36th Biennial Convention in Kansas City and took office in January 2012. She also has served as 1st, 2nd and 4th vice presidents.
Chornenky is proud to be a native of Phoenix, where she lives with her husband. A loyal Arizona State University (ASU) alum, Chornenky earned a bachelor's degree (graduating magna cum laude), master’s degree in counseling, and juris doctorate, all from ASU. She has practiced law for 28 years and currently owns her own business, making her sensitive to the issues of running a corporation.
Chornenky retired from the superior court bench in 1995 and went on to serve as a legislative attorney for an Arizona cabinet-level agency, drafting extensive legislation and successfully lobbying state budget issues, laws, and regulatory acts. She appeared in television, radio and print media, as well. She served as adjunct professor of constitutional law, substantive criminal law and evidence. Her private legal practice has included advising non-profit organizations, representing political candidates and campaign organizations, coordinating seminars and workshops, serving as a speaker on constitutional and political issues, and the defense of individuals charged with crimes.
Experience on the boards of the Junior League of Phoenix, Valley Leadership of Phoenix, YWCA, American Bar Association Criminal Justice Section’s Editorial Board, Arizona FRW and NFRW has allowed Chornenky insight into creative ways in which the community’s needs may be met. She has been named one of the most influential women by the Junior League of Phoenix and was selected as a fellow in the ASU Leadership Policy Program. Holding office in the parent organizations of her children’s schools and taking active participation in their sports and performance activities has increased her ability to achieve results outside of the realm of the “tried and true.”
As a Republican, Chornenky has been elected precinct committeeman and sat on the executive committee of the state party. She has been a member of the NFRW since 1994. She had the privilege of attending the 1995 NFRW biennial convention and, since that “beginning,” has continuously served on the NFRW Board of Directors, with the exception of one term. It has been her great honor to serve on and learn from the incredible leaders of the NFRW Membership, Program and Achievement Awards committees. She also served as vice chair of the NFRW Bylaws Committee and as NFRW state presidents coordinator.

How do you know if the facts presented are true and, more importantly, how do you choose what is best? Join us for a lively discussion on Saturday afternoon, Oct. 12th with Deborah Tompkins, President of Tompkins Benefit Group, Inc.
