Why am I part of BNC...

You may be wondering if NYS Women Inc. is a good use of your valuable time. It is. I've been a member since 1999 and have made great contacts, great friends, learned a lot about a variety of topics and enjoyed wonderful food. What else could be worth only a couple hours of your time per month?
