Watch for information from the Membership Committee about how you can volunteer to help one of these organizations in a hands-on way with your fellow PWF members.

As you become aware of other great organizations supporting women in Lexington remember that they can be nominated for a Dreambuilder project for next year, 2021. In the meantime, please encourage members of other organizations to Join PWF. As a PWF member they will have opportunities to share information about upcoming events in the newsletter as well as placing information on the Member Information Table by the entrance to our meeting space. Also, as a PWF member you or your designate can attend the monthly meeting and network with other PWF members so that they know what is coming up at your agency. A relatively new option is the PWF Spotlight program, where an organization sponsors a meeting and has the opportunity to speak to the group for 3 minutes before the keynote speaker. In addition, the Spotlight organization receives recognition leading up to the meeting in the newsletter and on the website / social marketing.
