We are honored and delighted to welcome MBN Founding Member Kathryn D. Hubbell as our speaker for March! Kathy will deliver the speech she gave as she stepped down as MBN President, just two years after founding it the mid-80s. The speech is about women and power, and likely holds truth and relevance even today.
MBN General Meetings are open to anyone, and this will be one you don’t want to miss! Share the Zoom link with friends and colleagues, current and past members, new and potential members. These kinds of opportunities don’t come along often!
