December 14, 2016 lunch meeting

We celebrated the impact of giving time, money & energy to our BWN community! We heard success stories from past recipients of our scholarship program.  We had over 20 baskets to raffle off with benefits to this year's scholarship winners. 

We ended the year with some powerful networking, relationship building and giving!  SEE THE PHOTOS HERE!






BWN began in 1979 as 'The Women's Network' with the goal of providing an informal networking setting for women. In 1992, the group refocused to provide a more formal networking organization and incorporated in November of that year.

A volunteer board of directors runs BWN, which has nearly 200 members representing large and small businesses, non-profits, government and private organizations. Although most members live or work in Howard County, individuals from all over the Baltimore/ Washington Corridor area attend monthly meetings.
