This is an important announcement about our 2016 Women’s Forum event:
Due to an unexpected scheduling conflict, Kelley Tuthill has had to postpone her commitment as this year’s keynote speaker.
In her stead, we are pleased to welcome Emily Riemer, who has graciously volunteered to attend this year’s Women’s Forum event.
Please join us on October 16 as we welcome Emily to Woburn and support new projects in the Woburn Public Schools!
