The New Year is upon us, and now is an opportunity to make resolutions and set goals. I hope you will join us in reaching the WWBA’s goal of increasing our membership numbers by January 31st. We are counting on everyone’s contribution to help us reach our goal! Here’s why:
The WWBA is a chapter of the Women’s Bar Association of the State of New York, which we call, “WBASNY,” the largest statewide women’s bar association in the country. For more than 40 years, WBASNY has been an important resource for women lawyers, with professional networking, continuing legal education programming, leadership training, and advocacy for the rights of women, children, and families. WBASNY is comprised of 20 chapters throughout New York State, and Westchester is the second largest chapter.
Renew now and stay part of our dynamic network! Your WWBA membership is June 1 - May 31.
