The luncheon will also recognize the 2024 Women’s Achievement Award winners, which include the following award categories: 2024 Woman of the Year, the Toby Strout Lifetime Contribution Award, and the Emerging Leader Award. The winners of these awards will be announced soon!
Additionally, women owned-businesses and local organizations for women are invited to reserve exhibit space for the luncheon. Exhibits will be available for viewing by luncheon attendees prior to the start of the program.
