I shared my passion for teaching fun, financial empowerment at COSIA. The women in attendance were attentive, open, friendly and wonderful to work with.

It was both a privilege and a pleasure to work with this organization.

I have volunteered my career development services to the women of COSIA, presenting at a fundraiser and the annual retreat. I have also volunteered and participated in events. I am consistently impressed by the passion and dedication of the COSIA members. The founder is an inspiration and a positive force as well!

I became a member of COSIA several years ago after receiving an invitation from the founder. COSIA is a powerfully encouraging support network, where the leaders teach by example, point members in the right direction, and courage them to reach their potential. Since joining COSIA, I have published a novel, launched an LLC, and have begun to be recognized with awards. I count my blessings and credit this success largely to advice and encouragement that I have received from COSIA's founder and members throughout the years.

I joined COSIA as a housewife who was working part-time and had dreams of writing a book. Lois Reddick connected with me and invited me into a support network of women with impressive credentials and even more amazing spirits. The women of COSIA encourage and empower each other. We band together and help each other prosper. Since joining, I have contributed to their newsletter, became editor-in-chief, and then director of publications. Since then, I have completed my novel and landed an agent. I am seeing my goals and dreams take shape and actualize, as a result of being influenced by COSIA members and COSIA's commitment to excellence. One plants, one waters, but God gives the increase. And for me, COSIA has truly been a blessing.

If anyone have the need to feel Empowered, Cosia Non Profit Organization is the best organization i have had the privilege of being a member. Participating in various events have been very fulfilling and educational. Lois and the members offer positive, empowering, effective tools in a very positive context. It allows women to both "nourish their hopes and not their fears". You walk away feeling refreshed.

Being involved in COSIA has been a positive experience. It is refreshing to see women coming together from all walks of life to support and encourage one another. Often times, we see the media depicting women in a negative light by tearing each other down. COSIA expresses coming together so we can be the best we can, in addition to learning from one another..

COSIA is more to me than a network of business associates, friends, and members -- it's a network of family members. I look forward to the once-monthly meetings in Seattle, WA. It is there that I enjoy networking over tea with other meeting goers and learning something new from our acclaimed speakers/instructors. We've had 10 classes this year so far, everything from goal setting to negotiation to emergency preparedness and self reliance. Outside of our Seattle meetings, I can stay in "network" by looking at the COSIA website and checking my email for other events, articles, and updates. As the new year approaches, I look forward to knowing that the 2014-2015 COSIA board of officers strives for new and innovative ways to grow its members both professionally and personally. Both are needed & I am proud to be apart of such a philanthropic and caring organization!

I attended my first COSIA event on Sept. 14th in NYC. I was invited my cousin who's a member and raved about how she enjoyed the events and the people associated with it. Well, I wasn't disappointed. Everyone was welcoming and the atmosphere was warm and positive. The main speaker, Naiobe S., was phenomenal. The subject matter of her presentation was informative and entertaining.

What really "Wow'd" me was an opportunity to have a life coaching session. I volunteered and was at the hands of Roselyn B. The session was invaluable. In less than twenty minutes, she put me on a course to realizing my dream, based on sharing past and current details and circumstances in my life. Needless to say, I joined the organization that day. Kudos to Lois and her wonderful sisterhood!

During the 2012 COSIA retreat in Chester, CT, I had the opportunity to witness COSIA in action from two standpoints: that of a photographer and that of a male. As a photographer, I saw a lot of great interaction and women of different ethnicities and backgrounds coming together for fellowship, peace, spiritual grounding, and a renewing of the mind. As a male, it was not a visual experience as much as it was a heartfelt journey of the two days that I was at the retreat acting in the capacity of a photographer. There were amazing women whose strength, experiences, and wisdom could not be captured in still shots, but could only be witnessed and felt in the heart. What I saw through the camera lenses was a group of women working together and supporting each other. What I felt as a man were community and a loving spirit moving throughout the room.

COSIA is a beautiful testimony to the progress that can be made when resources are pooled and differences embraced. In a proactive, well-organized, yet sensitive way, it has enabled members to experience the power of cooperation and mutual respect.

Doesn’t matter what’s your background or race, COSIA a non profit organization that help bring women together. I like being with the organization because I can express myself without criticism. I am also glad to be a volunteer photographer.
