GWWN Committee Membership

GWWN committee membership is governed by the Executive Board who manages the overall
activity for the committee positions, responsibilities and/or activities.  Members can manage
subcommittee positions, responsibilities and/or activities.

GWWN involvement in a committee offers you the opportunity:

  •  to connect with other dynamic women
  •  expand your skill sets to build your resume
  •  contribute to the community – locally, nationally, and internationally
  •  listing in GWWN literature and on the GWWN website
"People join organizations to meet prospective customers and people that they'd like to network with, but simply being a member is not enough. You can demonstrate your leadership skills and place yourself in a position to be more widely recognized when you volunteer to become an active participant in the organization to which you belong. Get involved in committees. Become active in the governance of the organization."
