Dear Members, Women Business Owners, Partners, and Friends:
It was 10 years ago on this very day, at 1:13 pm EDT to be precise, that WEConnect International was formally established. As I reflect upon my own journey and the journey of the organization, there is much that we have accomplished, and I wanted to take the time to thank you for making our work possible.
