Message from New President

Message from New President

Its hard to believe I was just installed as your NYS Women Inc President. Thank you to everyone for all your words of encouragement and support. I get asked all the time why NYSW when there are so many business organizations out there. The answer to this question is different for each one of us but for me – mentoring, networking, personal/professional development, friendships, are words that come to mind. It is by far the best organization I am part of.
