Through the years, the members of the LAFRW have participated in county, state and national activities. Currently, there are three LAFRW members serving the citizens of Los Alamos County as elected officials. Sharon Stover is the county clerk, Fran Berting is a county councilor and JoAnn Johnson is the county assessor and the first vice president for 2014-2015 New Mexico Federation of Republican Women.

The LAFRW has a guest speaker or holds a special event at each monthly meeting in addition to conducting the regular business at hand. The women of the LAFRW bring toiletries to the monthly meetings for the women’s shelter in Española.
Every year during the holiday season, the LAFRW adopts a local needy family to make sure they have plenty of food and gifts.
For many years now, the club has also sponsored a young woman from the Los Alamos High School senior class to attend the New Mexico Girl’s State Conference it Eastern New Mexico University, and also makes sure to take part in the annual Los Alamos County Fair/Rodeo parade every August.
The LAFRW women are also involved in state and national work.
The club is a vital force in the activities of Los Alamos County and the state of New Mexico.
The LAFRW work to promote the principles, objectives and policies of the Republican Party, elect Republican candidates, inform the public through political education and activity and increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government.
