Women's Leadership Connection- Mayor Teri Brenkus - Why Volunteering Your Time is so Important
Formerly Lunch WISE Wednesday, this series exclusively for women is being hosted by the Richland Area Chamber of Commerce. Each month we'll have a time of powerful networking, a motivational "TED-type" talk as well as a chance to learn more about your community. We look forward to having you join us!
Why Volunteering Your Time is so Important
I would like to share my personal experience as a woman in government (with no prior experience in the public sector) along with what we have accomplished in 5 1/2 years and what the future looks like for Bellville.
