  • Kids grow up and leave, careers evolve, and home addresses change. Through it all, ROBWEC has been a constant — a group of savvy and thoughtful women who support one another both personally and professionally.

  • When I become part of this marvelous group, I used member services whenever possible — and thanked them in the meetings and through the newsletter. More importantly, I referred members and referred people TO members whenever I uncovered an opportunity. ROBWEC rocks!

  • ROBWEC connects me with women who were and are friends, mentors and supporters during good times and bad and form a significant part of my past, present and future.

  • ROBWEC has the most amazing speakers each month. I always leave feeling inspired!
