Good Evening Members and Friends of PWC NOW,We are happy to share that will be having our Executive Board Meeting as well as the Planning Meeting for two of our major activities this year, The Stand for Women NOW Rally and the Fourth of July parade. These are two very important planning sessions for our organization and you are invited to attend!We are so very excited to share with you details of our progress for these two events, such as we will be making grassroots video’s during our meetings, during our rally, and the parade! We have made strides and will start our very first PWC NOW Internet Talk Show (coming soon, details will be shared)!So much to share, it’s hard to share everything during our general meeting and plan all the logistics! These two events (Rally & 4th of July Parade) require additional support and attention, and that is the reason why we had to have planning meetings.If you would like to attend our planning meeting this Friday, June 19th @8pm in person, we will be at the IHOP 12901 Galveston Ct, Manassas, VA 20112. If you are unable to attend in person, we do have a conference dial in number: Dial (712) 775-7031 when asked for the pin number, dial: 969-450-039If you cannot make the planning meeting, our general meeting is Saturday, June 20, 2015 at 12pm. We will have our Dads and Daughters event that will be filmed! I will send out the agenda for that event in a separate email this week.

WHAT A DAY!! Over the weekend, Prince William County NOW celebrated their first anniversary with over 60 women and men in attendance! They collectively came together for the good of the cause, which is to support women and encourage them to lead! We are so proud of such an amazing, humbling and powerful day!
A big round of applause to PWC NOW’s President, Hala Ayala, whose incredible trailblazing continues to light the way! Also a very special thank you to PWC NOW’s board members who made this remarkable event happen: Sadie Barrera Mike Beaty Nancy Waltz Michael Bizik and Ginger Maddamma Jabs, who graciously hosted the event in the courtesy of her beautiful home!! You all rocked it!!!

Since we’re gathering this weekend, we thought we’d use this moment to ask you:
How do you want to engage with us? What issues are most important to you? What do you think about our social media strategies?
This survey takes about 5 minutes to fill out. Please, let us know what you’re thinking!
