Our vision is focused on helping the community, but we also use our weekly meetings as a learning opportunity. We invite community and cultural leaders to discuss pertinent issues, introduce local resources, and highlight problems that need our attention. In addition, our members represent a rich variety of professional and personal experience that allows for endless networking possibilities. Every meeting is an adventure in expanding our horizons and finding new avenues for service.
