Conservative activist, long-time broadcaster
Join us for an election recap and analysis with David Boze, former radio 770 AM talk show host, to find out what the election results mean going forward. David promises to provide thoughtful analysis and deep insight on the November election. Stay informed!
We will also have a presentation on the Convention of States. Our precious Constitution has been eroding! The bulging Federal Government has grabbed powers and control explicitly designated as "States Rights." The Executive branch passes laws continually without mention in the Legislature! The Judicial Branch, sworn to defend and uphold the Constitution, is rewriting it without restraint. The whole design around Individual Sovereignty is disappearing.
As Mark Levin explains in his book "The Liberty Amendments," the Founders wrote into this magnificent document, its own protection! Article V instructs people to push back and PROTECT this timeless unique rule book on Freedom! The US Constitution has improved the lives, opportunities, creations and prosperity of the greatest part of it's population ever experienced by a society. WOW is pleased to announce a discussion about this Article V and its impact as presented by Eric Minor, president of Convention of States Action.
Prior to our speakers, you can meet, mingle, sip wine, and nibble on munchies with fellow WOW members and their guests. Don't miss this great opportunity to connect with new, interesting women that share your conservative values.

FOX News Contributor, New York Times Best-selling Author, 44th Governor of Arkansas
Mike Huckabee was the 44th Governor of Arkansas from 1996 until 2007, becoming one of the longest serving Governors in his state’s history, and was only the fourth Republican elected to any statewide office since Reconstruction, serving longer than the other three combined. He left a legacy of tax cuts, job creation, the reconstruction of his state’s road system, K-16 education reform, and a nationally heralded and duplicated health initiative that focused on the less expensive approach of prevention than the costly big-government approach of intervention. His administration fought long-standing corruption in the state’s political machine, resulting in numerous indictments and convictions of powerful legislators and other elected officials.
Governing Magazine named him as one of its “Public Officials of the Year” for 2005, and Time Magazine honored him as one of the five best governors in America. He has been honored by numerous organizations for his commitment to music education. He served as the Chairman of the prestigious National Governors Association as well as the Education Commission of the States, the Southern Governors Association, and the Interstate Oil and Gas Commission.
Huckabee had been Lieutenant Governor for 3 years in July 1996 when his predecessor was forced to resign due to felony convictions.
After his 2008 campaign for President, Governor Huckabee launched the top rated weekend show on the Fox News Channel for 6 1/2 years, and hosted a nationally syndicated radio commentary on over 700 radio stations.
He left his media platforms in 2015 to seek the Republican nomination for President. He ended the race in February of 2016, and in April re-joined the Fox News Channel.
Governor Huckabee is also a New York Times bestselling author, having written 12 books. Huckabee, an avid musician since age 11, is a bass player. His hobbies include hunting, fishing, and music. He was named one of the “25 Most Influential People” for Conservation by Outdoor Life Magazine, and was named "Man of the Year" by the American Sportfishing Association in 1997. The former governor and his wife, Janet, have three grown children and five grandchildren.
