Message From The President

presidentphoto My does time fly!  My 4-year tenure as President of the Prince George’s County Section, National Council of Negro Women, Inc. has come to an end.  It has been a challenging but most rewarding experience.

I am very grateful to all the Section members who have faithfully worked hard in  planning and executing our many programs and projects to make them successful.  I am particularly grateful to all of you who have supported our mission by becoming members, providing donations and attending our fundraising events.  Your support has  helped us to accomplish our mission and, thus, improving the lives of women, children and families in Prince George’s County.

I wish the very best to the new officers, and, most importantly,  your continued support to the goals and objectives of this Section and the National Council of Negro Women, Inc.  For your viewing pleasure, please review the links on this website and, particularly, the Image Gallery which shows some of our major projects and events during my tenure.  Also, the Section plans to have our 15th Annual Prayer Breakfast on Saturday, October 22, 2016 (see attached flyer).  I hope to see you there.
