Message From The President

Welcome to the Professional Women's Alliance

It's an honor and a privilege to lead the PWA organization into a new decade.   My vision for PWA is for our members to collaborate, encourage, and rally behind each other as we pursue our individual goals.   As your president, I encourage you to embrace the new decade by choosing courage over comfort by continuing to learn, acquiring new opportunities, engaging with people from different backgrounds, and helping to build strong communities by giving of yourself to others.

PWA Year 2020 includes a diversity of programs, speakers, and members who will share and show you how they chose courage over comfort.  I encourage you to choose to have the courage to help others by getting involved in our mentoring program and philanthropic events.  I also encourage you to learn something new by attending the speaker, skill builder, and the leadership training and symposium events.  Lastly,  share your stories of courage with others at our golf tournament, social events, and our newly named and revamped book club that is now called CCC (Conversations, Connections, and Cocktails) which focuses on getting women together to have conversations, not just about books, but about current events and topics that are relevant to professional women.

I look forward to seeing you at the PWA events and hearing how you embrace the new decade and choose courage over comfort.  In short, get involved and help make our organization relevant and impressionable to the women who will follow in your footsteps.
