One of the unique features of BWN is that we are ACTIVE supporters of our Howard County community. Not only do our members support each other as women in the business world, but we also harness the collective power of our membership to support the vital service work of various local organizations -- every month.

This month, help us support Success in Style. With retail locations in Historic Savage Mill and Laurel, Success In Style provides business wardrobes and coaching at no cost to disadvantaged men and women seeking employment. 

During our September 26 meeting, we will be collecting new or clean, gently-used bras for SIS clients. BWN member Christy Edwards will provide tax receipts at the meeting.
