Mary Accettura

2016 - 2018 State President

GFWC Oregon Federation of Women’s Clubs


We’re very proud of Portland Woman’s Club member, Mary Accettura, who ascended to the office of State President in 2016. Mary is a team player and a go-getter with all kinds of energy who has been serving the Federation for decades. She took a break from the Federation then rejoined the Portland Woman’s Club in 2012 where her talents were quickly recognized by the GFWC Oregon Federation of Women’s Clubs. Mary is a hands-on leader who stands behind the people she has chosen to do the various jobs of the Oregon Federation.


The Portland Woman’s Club is very proud of Mary’s accomplishments and find her to be a solid leader who will take the Oregon Federation far in growth and continuing a tradition that was started in 1899. Great job, State President Mary Accettura!
