A Warm Welcome from the WIN Co-chairs...



Greetings WINners,





We look forward to an exceptionally exciting year ahead and cordially invite your participation in the many impactful projects and initiatives planned for this year. We are grateful to have our Immediate Past Co-Chair, Lisette Lavergne, and Senior Advisor, Olufunmi Oluyede, continue to provide a wealth of knowledge, guidance, and support for the WIN Committee this year. We appreciate everyone that contributes their time, talents, resources, and leadership skills to maximizing our reach and impact across committees, sections, states, regions, and continents.





As the current Co-Chairs we personally invite you to become active participants in the many opportunities the WIN Committee offers members to engage women from around the globe. We are open to new ideas, initiatives, and programming aimed at enhancing and preserving the rights of women in the United States and abroad. We want you involved and encourage you to be sure you are on the Listserv for announcements, view our web page to keep your calendar current, and check our social media sites for interesting news and updates.
