I love being a part of this organization. It is made up of wonderful women who are willing to join and give their time for the cause of improving the lives of women in the state. It is a big job, but we have started to make a difference by influencing Legislators and organizing events to show that women care about what's going on in the state and in the nation.

I was so impressed with this group of women and how they work on women's issues in the state that I applied to serve on the board. This group was formed by some women who saw a need in the community to bring women's issues before the public. There is a very strong lobbying effort that goes during the Session and the organization has been out front on all issues affecting women. I'm continually impressed with the hard working board members and E.D. who are responsible for the continuing growth of this organization.

North Dakota Women's Network has allowed me to network with other women who feel strongly about women's issues. Before this organization came along, I did not know of a way to be actively involved in women's issues in a way that impacted women from all over North Dakota. The organization has promoted women of North Dakota through various methods and is continually working to improve the lives of all women in North Dakota.
