As a countdown to our 25th Anniversary Celebration in Colonial Williamsburg in April, EWGA Founder Nancy Oliver has agreed to write a weekly column and share her amazing collection of newsletters and press clips revealing the early years.
Shortly thereafter, their sister chapter in Baltimore set the bar with a tremendous kick-off at Turf Valley in early 1993. Attorney Chris Owens’ organizational skills were a key element in their successful launch, with over 300 women signing up for membership that evening. The strategy? She enlisted the help of other female leaders within the business community, such as Judith Martinak, Joan Clark, Nancy Trail, Lynn Cole and Faye Johnson. It is this type of networking that truly provides a diversity in both geographic terms as well as professional affiliations. The Baltimore Chapter continues to demonstrate leadership thanks to the foundation set in 1993 and followed by long term support from people like Sharon Waller, Sharon Guida, Colleen Baum and others.
