Women Executives:  Feel the Power. Strong connections. High-energy events. Significant service.

WE is back! Covid impacted our lives causing many changes, numerous starts and stops requiring us to navigate new ways to connect and we have found our new normal. While many of us continue to work hybrid schedules, we enthusiastically enjoy the opportunity to come together to engage with one another. I am excited about the WE year ahead. WE will celebrate our 47th anniversary this year and we have a strong membership of 291 members. Together, we can accomplish anything.
