2 Connect And Grow With Women In Our Community


Dear Readers,


On Monday September 16, I was invited to attend a small breakfast given by the North Carolina Defense Business Association. The guest speaker was Congressman Robert Pittenger of the 9th district. When he finished speaking it was then opened up for questions and answers. I asked him what he could do to help ratify the ERA in North Carolina. He rudely said to me that the ERA is dead and he is a busi- ness man. I then told him besides owning my own busi- ness, I was also president of BPW/NC and that the ERA is not dead and we are still working on getting it through. He then dismissed me and went on to someone else.


I was boiling when I left, but after thinking about it, maybe this was a wakeup call for someone who may have his head in the sand, and make him aware of this important issue. I urge everyone to keep fighting this battle and let’s all keep writing our congressman and senators and keep them aware of this important issue, not only for women, but for Americans.


I want to congratulate all our honorees for our Making An Impact Awards. I can’t wait till our Making An Impact For A Cause event to meet these amazing women.


Come out and help us honor these women on November1 and support The Sandbox which does so much to help families with children who have life threatening illness! 100% of the auction items go this worthy organization! Register on our website and click on events tab. Black tie optional and will be a great evening!


Have a great month! Mimi
